I'm looking for an authoritative picture history of the Japanese aircraft carriers. in English. I don't want something small like "Japanese Aircraft Carriers and Destroyers" or the ridiculously short Osprey book (as theirs all are) but a full size history of each class with photos like Polmar and Friedman have done with US battleships and cruisers or the suburb "Japanese Cruisers of the Pacific War".
Unfortunately, no such book exists. Hans Lengerer's "opus magnus" on IJN CVs is the book you want, but it has only first volume published. You can buy it here, for example. Don't fear the title in German - it's bi-lingual.
There are also books on some individual classes.

Thanks- I appreciate the information. I see that 89 Euros equals $1.09 US.
Best,
