    The final, post war, carrier invention was the steam catapult. Aircraft had, up until this time, left the carrier’s flight deck by a number of different means, the most obvious being the free take off, which was still being employed by the Skyraider AEW1 in the ’s. This book includes the major designs that went to war in WW1 and WW2 and aircraft used by all the combatants. It looks at how the aircraft evolved and how the warships were modified to accommodate the aircraft and the catapult system.
