Here, Brad Elward provides a detailed overview of their design and development, highlighting their unique features, from jet blast deflectors to cutting edge radar systems, and a history of the Nimitz class in service, from deployment in the Gulf during Operation Desert Storm, through to the enforcement of the no fly zone over Bosnia.

"I would highly recommend this book to any modeler wanting reference to the aircraft carriers of the Nimitz class, or to any person who is interested in the history of aircraft carriers as a whole. The art and photography are very good ... the book is well written and informative." -Scott Hollingshead, IPMS/USA
"Elward, a published aviation historian, leads off with an excellent discussion of the origins of the Nimitz-class supercarrier, followed by a detailed description of the ship itself ... The book is filled with excellent photographs and rawings that show how the various carriers of this class developed. This is a nice reference book that aviation historians should keep handy."
-Doug Siegfried. The Hook (Summer 2012)
