By Tim Hillier-Graves
It is an oft forgotten fact that British forces, particularly naval forces, participated in the Pacific part of World War II. This excellent book reminds us of that important reality. While there were submarines, cruisers, destroyers and battleships involved, it focuses on aircraft carriers, particularly HMS Indomitable. That ship fought, as part of the British Pacific Fleet, for 16 months in important battles such as Sumatra, Leyte Gulf and Okinawa.
