THE BRITISH CARRIER STRIKE FLEET - AFTER 1945

David Hobbs

Be the first to review this product

In 1945 the most powerful fleet in the Royal Navy's history was centred on nine aircraft carriers. This book charts the post war fortunes of this potent strike force - its decline in the face of diminishing resources and its recent resurrection in the form of the Queen Elizabeth class carriers, the largest ships ever built for the Royal Navy and due to become fully operational in 2020.

After 1945 British carrier borne aircraft were employed, almost continuously, in numerous conflicts as from Korea to the South Atlantic and beyond. This book covers operations with analysis of the strategic and political background. It is an important book of renewed significance as Britain and the Royal Navy once again embraces carrier aviation.
