Full Description:

The Supercarriers is a comprehensive historical overview with extensive photos, maps, drawings, and operational detail, including all air wing deployments. It covers all of the Forrestal class supercarriers and the follow-on ships, which are basically of the same design.

The book is heavily illustrated with over one hundred illustrations and maps covering the Western Pacific, Vietnam, Mediterranean, Middle East, Indian Ocean, and Caribbean. The front end paper illustration shows the Saratoga as representative of the Forrestal class with port and starboard profiles and an overhead view. The rear end paper displays similar views of the Constellation as part of the Kitty Hawk class.

Andrew Faltum served as an air intelligence officer aboard USS Midway home ported in Yokosuka, Japan, before joining the Navy Reserve, retiring as a commander. He is the author of The Independence Light Aircraft Carriers and The Essex Aircraft Carriers.
