First published in 1943, this is the story of the roles played by the aircraft carriers and their squadrons of fighter pilots in the early years of the war. With aid of pictures and maps, Fleet Air Arm records the daring and bravery of those who took part. "The heights to which the human spirit may rise are unpredictable, and the effort of the will, which is the weapon of the spirit, transcends failure or success. That morning Winkle Esmonde and his companions created an imperishable example which will live in the traditions of the Royal Navy and will remain for future generations a fine and stirring memory. Thirteen of the squadron gave their lives. In the hearts of those who returned there is no bitterness."
