Ginter Books - Naval Fighters: Douglas TBD1 Devastator
The US Navy first carrier-based monoplane was a torpedo bomber rather than a nimble fighter. It was also the first all-metal, high performance aircraft and the first aircraft with hydraulically folding wing.
This book take you back to the early days of the Navy with a new weapon on the new and untried aircraft carriers when the Battle ship was king.
There are a lot of photos, drawing, cut away along with ship and squadron history.
