This book provides an overview of the history of the aircraft carrier. The first plane to launch from a ship was in 1910. The first carrier was launched one hundred years ago in 1917. Tillman proceeds to tell us about the changes to the carrier that have occurred over the past one hundred years. This is a good review to provide a prospective to the current debate regarding the carrier. Has its cost and size gotten too big? Are smaller and more carriers better?
The book is well written and researched. Tillman covers the carrier, the planes and the key battles fought by carriers over the years. Tillman is a well-known naval historian. What country had the first carrier? I am not going to tell; you will need to read the book. You will be surprised by the answer.
The book is nine and a half hours long. Peter Berkrot does a good job narrating the book. Berkrot is an actor, voice-over artist and award-winning audiobook narrator.

A great short history of Carriers. A very British idea that the USA perfected gloriously.
