9780552152907: Phoenix Squadron: HMS Ark Royal, Britain's last Topguns and the untold story of their most dramatic mission

January 1972: the tiny outpost of British Honduras is threatened with imminent invasion by battle-hardened, US-trained Guatemalan paratroops. Britain's response must be immediate and decisive. But there is only one deterrent the government can offer: HMS Ark Royal, once the Navy's most powerful warship, now a white elephant on the verge of being scrapped.

To save the small colony, she must launch a pair of Buccaneer fighter bombers on an unprecedented long-range mission. But first the old carrier must make a high-speed, 1,500 mile dash across the Atlantic towards the Gulf of Mexico. The odds of arriving in time are very slim indeed...

Drawing on extensive first-hand accounts and previously unseen, classified documents, Rowland White has pieced together one of the most audacious and thrilling missions of post-war British military history.

Recensione:

"Aircraft carriers, jet fighters and a crisis on the other side of the world. Who could ask for more? It takes an obscure corner of British military history and weaves a story as gripping as any Tom Clancy thriller. It's completely riveting" (Jeremy Clarkson)

"From the cockpit of a fighter jet to the violently pitching deck of an aircraft carrier at night, Rowland White combines pulse-pounding tension with riveting detail. If only all military history was written like this..." (Andy McNab)

"[A] page-turning thriller of a book... White's obvious passion infuses every page and is highly infectious, while the level of detail should send any budding Tom Clancy rushing to the bookshops" (James Holland Daily Telegraph)

"Reads like a Patrick Robinson or Tom Clancy novel...This is a cracking read" ( Navy News)

"A gutsy, you-are-there true story that throbs with the sound and fury of carrier operations. Military history as it ought to be told" (Robert Gant)

Descrizione del libro:

The dramatic true story of Britain's last Top Guns and their most extraordinary mission, from the bestselling author of Vulcan 607
