They are floating cities with crews of thousands. They are the linchpins of any military strategy, for they provide what has become the key to every battle fought since World War I: air superiority. The mere presence of a U.S. naval carrier in a region is an automatic display of strength that sends a message no potential enemy can ignore. Now, Tom Clancy welcomes you aboard for a detailed look at how these floating behemoths function. With his trademark style and eye for detail, Clancy brings you naval combat strategy like no one else can.Carrier includes:

* Takeoffs and landings: flying into the danger zone
* The aircraft onboard: their range, their power, their weaponry
* The role of the carrier in modern naval warfare
* Exclusive photographs, illustrations and diagrams
Plus: An interview with the U.S. Navy's Chief of Naval Operations, Admiral Jay Johnson

Pretty sneaky, Mr. Clancy.
Why not make money on what make military ticks during research?
Surprisingly readable for layman to the professional.
Book size & loads of pictures & diagrams just right.
Ditto journal, & hypothetical short story.
Impressed on the bibliography on what books, pamphlets, videos & booklets author looked up.
More impressed with the professionals with respect & dignity on author during military wargames & exercises.
