This first volume of this Yorktown-class aircraft carrier monograph includes the history of this class of warships and their service through to the Pacific War. This volume includes a technical description illustrated by many drawings, photos and 3D graphics.

About Encyclopaedia of Warships

The books describe the development and service history of individual ships or entire classes, starting with initial design requirements and ending with crossing off from fleet roster or destroying. The development chapter focuses on the history of the ship starting with the designing phase, through her construction to all the modernizations and refits carried out. The ships'service is described in the form of a timeline. Special focus is on the notable events like the naval battles. The technical descriptions contain hull structure, armament, propulsion system and consecutive modernizations. The books are illustrated with multiple photographs, maps, tables and detailed plans printed on large formats. Most of the publications contain A1 format insets with plans, camouflaging schemes and - in case of the newer releases - also 3D graphics.
The newer books of this series are fully bilingual- Polish/English. The older ones contain English captions for the illustrations.
