The present publication is covering the supercarriers constructed during the period of the Cold War - there were nine of them, namely four Kitty Hawk - and four Forrestal - class carriers plus the nuclear-powered USS Enterprise. Subject carriers were designed straight after the Second World War and were capable of safely handling big jet aircrafts.

The publication was prepared with the intention of the author to detail the process of the development of the carriers and describe the history of each of them; the narrative is supplemented with numerous color photographs, sketches, drawings and original works of art that make the reading even more interesting. The publication has been found very informative and well-rounded.

According to the reviews from the specialists, this is a perfectly organized and truly great source of information for naval historians and it will definitely remain the excellent info source for many years to come. Moreover, we would recommend this volume to the ship model builders as they will have quite a lot of the practically useful information to use when making the models of these famous carriers that participated in the air campaigns of the Cold War era.
