AIRCRAFT CARRIER INTREPID (CV-11)- Anatomy of the Ship. More than 100 perspective and 3-view drawings, and scores of illustrations, this is a complete anatomy of the ship in words, photos and drawings.
AIRCRAFT CARRIER INTREPID - Anatomy of the Ship. By John Roberts. The Essex-class aircraft carriers are famous for their effectiveness and reliability as warships and the mammoth construction programs they initiated. Built in 1941, the Intrepid (CV11) was one of the class of twenty-four vessels constructed during and immediately after World War II. Carrying ninety aircraft each, they formed the main air strength and striking power of the U.S. Pacific Fleet against the Japanese from 1943 to 1945.
Written by well-known warship historian John Roberts, this classic reference on this classic ship features the extensive diagrams and photographs that this series has become justly famous for. It also offers an authoritative description of the concepts, design, modifications, and operational history of the Intrepid and a new large-scale fold-out plan. Rather than the ship's service history, this outstanding work details and documents the technical details of the ship literally down to the nuts and bolts.
