Product description

Review

With its focus on the human aspects of carrier life and naval aviation, this wide-ranging anthology will appeal to veterans and serving personnel, naval historians and enthusiasts..... ....2009 was the year of celebration for the Fleet Air Arm's 100 years anniversary. With hugely enjoyable events it also served to attract a whole array of books ranging from the fairly good through to those frankly impossible to review, bad as they were, being so inaccurate and having obviously been quickly produced to gather a market. No such worries exist in considering this superb offering for the celebration of the anniversary of THE Naval Aviation milestone in 2010.... Recommended? Certainly! This is a book certainly not to be missed. --Reviewed by Peter Rickard for Fleet Air Arm Officers' Association

...It is a tribute to Jean Hood that this book is not just a random selection from various Museum archives and biographies. The accounts really do cover every facet of carrier life and operations, and succeed in both educating and entertaining. This is a thoroughly enjoyable book and highly recommended. --Peter Wykeham-Martin for RN Museum Journal, RNSA journal and Warship World, November2010

...the definitive book on life in the capital ship of the past 70 or so years. --Navy News, October 2010

About the Author

Jean Hood is an acclaimed writer and historian. She formerly worked as Information Officer at Lloyd's Register of Shipping, and has published widely on maritime and naval subjects. Her work typically focuses on human stories of conflict and tragedy, incorporating eyewitness accounts and detailed research to cast new light on historical incidents. Her first non-fiction book, Marked for Misfortune, concerned the wreck of the East Indiaman Winterton. She is also the author of Trafalgar Square, Come Hell and High Water (published in paperback as Wreck) and the highly-praised anthologies Submarine and Carrier. Her latest project, War Correspondent, accompanies a major IWM exhibition and was published in May 2011.'
