HMS Illustrious

£10.00 £25.00
At the start of the 1982 Falklands campaign HMS ILLUSTRIOUS was in the final stages of build and not due to be accepted until autumn that year. Nevertheless, Swan Hunter Shipbuilders and all involved pulled out all the stops and remarkably she set sail on 18 June, uniquely commissioned at sea two days later and, within six weeks, was on her way to the South Atlantic with a double air group embarked. Her 32 year career since then has been equally remarkable. This this fine 298 page colour hardback book records the ship's history from the cradle to her final days with the Royal Navy.
