Foreword by Admiral Arleigh Burke, U. S. Navy. 128 pages, well illustrated, cloth, DJ, 9 by 12 inches, very good. From the DJ: "With additional text by senior officers of the U. S. Navy. Barrett Gallagher started this story of the American aircraft carrier during WWII when he was given orders by the Chief of Naval Operations to go aboard any ship or station in the Pacific at will to contribute to the photographic record of the Navy at war. Lt. Gallagher found the carrier such a fascinating subject that for many years after his assignment for the Navy was completed, he continued to take pictures of flattops, as they are called by the men who serve on them. This is his colorful story of the carrier in action and the changes in design and operation that led to the emergence of the new Forrestal class and the Enterprise, which is now under construction, and will introduce the new era of atomic carriers.
