Description

Todaka, ed. Part of the Japanese Naval Warship photo album series, this volume contains official photographs taken by the Kure Maritime Museum, as well as those taken by private individuals. These pictorial records document the main types of Japanese aircraft carriers and seaplane carriers, based on the best images from Shizuo Fukui, a former Imperial Japanese Navy commander and technician. Fukui dedicated his entire life to collecting photos of Japanese Naval vessels, and these images are especially valuable because of the massive destruction of official documents at the end of the war. 236 pages, B&W photos throughout, 11¾"x 8¼", hardcover.
