About this title


Warships named HMS London have been associated with some of the most controversial episodes in British naval history, from the bungled sea battle that lost King George III his American colonies, to the shambles of Gallipoli in World War I, and the notorious decision of the Admiralty to abandon convoy PQ17 in World War II. Author Iain Ballantyne's second entry in the Warships of the Royal Navy series is a fascinating and lively account of these British warships named London. It is told from the perspective of the men who were onboard, including interviews with veterans of the grim Arctic convoys, the Yangtze Incident, and warriors of the Cold War and Gulf War. The result is a thoroughly researched and exciting narrative that is illustrated throughout with photographs, many presented for the first time. 224 pages. Photographs. Hardcover. 6 x 9 inches.
