ShipCraft 12: Essex Class Carriers (Kindle)
of the Second World War
The latest volume covers the hugely important American carrier of the Second World War. Built in larger numbers than any fleet carrier before or since, the Essex class can claim to be the US Navy's most significant weapon in the defeat of Japan. Carrying up to 100 aircraft and capable of absorbing enormous punishment (not one was sunk), they spearheaded the Fast Carrier Task Forces for most of the Pacific War.
The heavily illustrated work contains everything a modeller needs to know about this prolific class.
The careful editorial and the excellent quality / price ratio make this beautiful volume a title of great interest not only for readers who will want to further deepen the topic, but also for the most prepared students, who will find in this work a useful, indispensable and very precise “companion” of high editorial and technical standing.STORIA militare, October 2018
