Warship Pictorial No.9: Yorktown Class Carriers
by Steve Wiper
Classic Warships Publishing
by Bob Pearson
The most famous warships in the United States Navy after their entry into WW2 would have to be the three Yorktown Class aircraft carriers - Yorktown (CV-5), Enterprise (CV-6) and Hornet (CV-8). Steve Wiper presents each one in turn in this photo monograph. Each one is given a brief history (between 1-4 pages) before turning to a section of well-captioned photos each of which is either full or half page in size. There is also a photo section on the aircraft types carried by the three.
For anyone contemplating a model of any of these ships this volume is recommended.
