A nice look at the background of the Taihō-class program in general, along with an detailed overview of IJN Taihō herself. The fact that she doubled as a support carrier, for example, is often overlooked.

I found a video summary of her loss on YouTube, a salutatory lesson on the importance of proper damage control.
