Book Description:

No weapons system has revolutionized naval operations like the aircraft carrier. As bigger and bigger ships were developed to handle more planes with greater firepower, these extraordinary vessels evolved from auxiliary use to the mainstay of naval forward presence, transforming the tactics, technologies, and cultures of the world's major sea powers.

About the Author:

Paul E. Fontenoy, PhD, is curator of maritime research and technology at the North Carolina Maritime Museum, Beaufort, NC, and a visiting assistant professor in the Maritime Studies Program at East Carolina University, Greenville, NC.
