World War 1 Seaplane and Aircraft Carriers. Author Mark Lardas.
The plane had barely come of age by 1914. People were trying to grasp how best to use the new technology in general, but particularly in conjunction with all the difficulties and challenges implicit in deploying aircraft in a maritime role. Few, if any, people realised that the aircraft carrier would become the dominant weapon of the worlds oceans within just a few decades. This book details the rapid progress of technology and innovation through detailed commentary and dozens of photographs and illustrations.
