More a scrapbook of pictures--no complaint there--than a thick history it contains a great many views detailing the life of this pivotal flattop.
I intend to go into more detail in a review for Amazon but suffice it to say it is well worth the money--I paid 14 clams for it--is printed (in China) on quality stock, is concise and possesses good reproduction of the photography and drawings.
For those prone to complain there is one whopper of text involved--I'll let folks figure that one out--but to any student of this ship it would be easy to spot and even easier to dismiss as an unfortunate error which, I expect, a second printing will resolve.
Again, I highly recommend this volume. Combined with Friedman's 'Carrier Design' volume, Cressman's sterling That Gallant Ship and the SNAME analysis of Yorktown's loss along with--I suppose--Wiper's Yorktown pictorial (I haven't seen that one yet) I'd expect one would have just about as much specific work on this great fighting ship as one could wish to have.
Have at it.
PS: Now, if only the USN would have the good sense to name an up-and-coming flattop the Yorktown...but it'll never happen. Mark. my. words.
