The Complete Idiot's Guide to Aircraft CarriersBook - 2003
The Complete Idiot's Guide to Aircraft Carriers is a guided tour of a modern nuclear-powered aircraft carrier like those used to support the current war on terrorism. Learn every nook and cranny, and see the role of every sailor and pilot who works on a modern "flattop." In addition to this anatomy lesson, the book will look at the history of the aircraft carrier- first developed during World War I to fulfill scouting duties for the battle fleet, then evolved during World War II as a projector of military might. This book will cover virtually every aspect of the aircraft carrier; from its use in WW II to the role the carrier will play in wars to come.
