British Aircraft Carriers 1939-45. Author Angus Konstam.
Following neglect in the inter war years, the Fleet Air Arm went from less than a handful of carriers in 1939 to 59 in the space of 6 years and battled the Axis powers in every theatre of war. The role they played, both offensive and defensive was significant in the British War effort. This book contains a myriad technical details and illustrations.
