In terms of the series : "The authors have taken pains to include rare or unusual pictures highlighting technical details, operational and "in action" views, equipment and personnel. [...]plus authoritative and incisive comment on the specific subject matter." -from the cover.
Well illustrated in b/w with intelligent comments on the carriers used in World War I and World War II, on either side of the conflict. General descriptions of the uniqueness of the ships, and/or their class, in terms of design and naval capabilities are given. On occasion the fate of particular ship is noted.
