Top customer reviews
Angus Konstam is one of my favorite Osprey Pub writers. If you are looking for a concise overview of British carriers, or if you have a library full of Osprey's books, this is a great one to add.
There are color plates of various ships, and plenty of black & white photos - at least 1 photo per each carrier described.
Operational histories and final outcome of each carrier that saw action in the war is given as well.
Overall, a very good booklet. It is what I wanted and expected - a BRIEF history of British carriers. Excellent resource for modelers. Ordered via Amazon and everything arrived in great condition and a few days before expected.
