DESCRIPTION: Another IoW series addition with the now expected 
outstanding and rare images. This is the comprehensive view of US 
naval aviation from its start to 2014, much recommended.

The now very familiar IoW format provides a visualisation of war that 
is difficult to fully describe in words. However, there is clear and 
concise text in support of the rare images and nicely complements the 
images.

This is probably the only book in the series to cover such a wide 
period of history. Most series editions cover a single war and even a 
single campaign. Even so, the author has not neglected any aspect of 
this history.

Even the earliest photographs are reproduced to a high standard. The 
photo story follows the earliest fixed wing aircraft, airships, flying 
boats, seaplanes, carriers and crews as the US Navy moved from frail 
biplanes and dirigibles to metal monoplanes, and from propeller to jet. 
Images are mainly in monochrome but there is a small section of excellent 
full colour images.

This book is a very welcome addition to the series and to available 
information about naval aviation.
