THE AIRCRAFT CARRIER VICTORIOUS
The distinguished career of the aircraft carrier Victorious extended from World War II to 1967. A major refit during the 1950's saw her emerge as the Royal Navy's most advanced carrier in the world.
The author's drawings show all the changes which she underwent during her long career, while the text focuses especially on her war service which included a number of daring airstrikes, most notably against the German battleships Bismarck and Tirpitz. Later, she sailed for the Far East where she was part of the British Pacific Fleet; there she withstood several kamikaze attacks.
