HMS Ark Royal is one of the Royal Navy's most iconic ships. When she was launched in 1938 she was one of the most sophisticated weapons at the disposal of the British Admiralty. The aircraft carrier was the latest, and soon to be one of the most feared, developments in naval warfare. In her first two years of operation the Ark Royal survived countless attacks, and was considered one of the luckiest ships in the Navy. In June 1941 the Ark Royal won one of Britain's most famous naval victories, sinking the German battleship, the Bismarck, after she had ravaged the British fleet in the Atlantic. It was a signal victory that resonated around the world. When the Ark Royal returned to the Mediterranean, where her aircraft continued to defy the Luftwaffe, Hitler was determined to sink her. Within weeks, the Ark Royal was destroyed while sailing off the coast of Gibraltar, torpedoed by a German U-boat. There she rested, one kilometre below the surface of the Mediterranean, until her wreck was discovered by Mike Rossiter in 2004. In gripping detail, and using the testimony of survivors of the sinking and men who lived, flew and fought on the Ark Royal, Mike Rossiter tells the remarkable life and legend of this most famous of ships.… (more)
