Naval Aviators and Carrier Aviation : A HistoryBook - 2001
Kaplan, who spent time at sea on both British and American carriers in the research for this book, describes aircraft carriers of the past and present, the planes that have flown from them, and the lives of the men and women who run the ships and fly the planes. His accounts of their experiences, based on archives, diaries, and interviews, provide a vivid picture of the dangers of combat and of everyday life aboard a carrier. Dramatic color and bandw photos, from historical and modern eras, illustrate the book. Kaplan has worked on books about combat in WWII and air and naval warfare.
