The Essex class fleet aircraft carriers are famous for their effectiveness and reliability as warships and for the great size of the construction programmes of which they formed a part. Intrepid (CV11) was one of 24 such vessels built during and after World War II, the largest class of fleet carriers ever constructed. Carrying 90 aircraft each, they formed the main air strength and striking power of the US Pacific Fleet against the Japanese during 1943-45. This text provides full documentation of this ship. Line drawings covering both the conventional type of plan and explanatory views are provided, with fully descriptive keys. These are supported by technical details and a record of the ship's service history.
