This extensively illustrated volume tells the dramatic yet successful story of US aircraft carriers in World War II by class, ranging from early pre-war designs to escort carriers built from destroyer hulls, to the gigantic fleet carriers serving as the predecessors of modern-day super carriers.

Besides covering the famous great carrier battles in the Pacific, this book also tells of the equally important actions of US flat tops hunting and destroying German U-boats in the Atlantic, making an enormous contribution to the elimination of the U-boat dangers and the safe arrival of transatlantic supplies, so desperately needed for the launch of D-Day.

Including profiles and explanatory text boxes, the concise text gives a clear overview of each ship’s career, its fate and its significance in American naval history. Moreover, the reader learns about the technical evolution of US carriers throughout the war, and the various aircraft launched from these magnificent vessels to engage their Japanese or German foes. This volume provides an overview of preserved World War II flat tops serving as floating museums for future generations as well as a dive to the sunken USS Saratoga at Bikini Atoll.

The Historical Miniatures Gaming Society

«...an engaging read with many excellent accompanying photographs and colour artwork. […] If you like Carriers, you will undoubtedly enjoy this book.»

Wargames Illustrated 06/12/2021

«I have long been interested in aircraft carriers and this has been one of the most interesting books, at a reasonable price, that I can think of.»

Military Model Scene 08/11/2021

«…this excellent “one-stop shop” for everything relating to the US Navy’s carriers of the Pacific War will earn its keep over time, offering a good potted history of that conflict and, invaluably, individual histories of the flat-tops of the 1939–45 period.»

The Aviation Historian Magazine 25/10/2021

«...probably my favorite book that I’ve reviewed in the 18 or 19 years I’ve been doing this for IPMS/USA (That long? Really?). Of course, I am biased to the subject matter, but the author has taken so much important information and put it all together in such a highly organized, logical, and easy to read format, that I have to recommend it to you very highly, and without caveat.»

NavyBooks 02/08/2021

«This is a useful overview of the US carrier fleet, with good descriptions of the various classes and their strengths and weaknesses, and a complete photographic reference for every carrier that served during the war.»
