Description:
New book, 272 pages. On 25 May 1982, at a critical juncture in the Falklands War, the destroyer HMS Coventry was attacked by Argentinian aircraft. In a devestating strike, she was hit by three bombs, two of which exploded inside her hull, killing nineteen of her crew and leaving many others badly injured. Within minutes, Coventry had capsized, and would finally sink off Pebble Island the following day. The loss of HMS Coventry was deeply traumatic; it was the first occasion since the Second World War that a British captain and his crew had to abandon a stricken ship and take to life rafts in the cold and unforgiving waters of the South Atlantic.
