This is definitely not your normal military memoir.

First, it's a diary. You'll see what the author of the diary experiences each day. That format really grew on me. What he does each day. Working on Illustrious TV. His opinions of movies usually agreed with mine, so loved that. Some of the stories are just amazing. The "I think I just saw God" one was truly laugh out loud quality.

It's fascinating to watch a Brit talk about America. It's really interesting seeing your own culture through someone else eyes. Though you do wonder what American cities require head of families to own a gun - and if you don't, you get arrested.....

If you want combat, this isn't your story as the Illustrious didn't see combat action.

I was able to get it for free. 3,622 locations. I stopped reading it quickly, read a couple of other books, then came back. Very glad that I did - so give it a while.

I thought that the story was going to be about the war and not the ship. The author spent too much time talking about the ship
and not its affect on the war.

This is the first book I've read on the Falklands. It was an interesting take on not the actual fighting but the mundane everyday happenings during war.

Although this does not contain actual combat coverage or combat information, it was very interesting. The book really shows how the Royal Navy brought a new Carrier online in just six weeks instead of many months! Amazing. The book is a diary and it contains a fair amount of humor especially when the carrier made port calls in the US. I'm glad I read it.

This certainly wasn't a book to hold the interest as so much of the information was repetitive entries about the predictable life of an officer on a warship. There was no overall appreciation of the Falklands incident and as such the book is very limited in its scope. The were interesting snippets on ship design and testing, and a bit on operational issues in training and the time in the war zone. Other than that the only significant entries were the shore leave at Philadephia on the way home and a bit of a review of the Falklands history and political assessment of the developing storm. It is what it is - a sailor's diary.

Let's get things straight right away. This book is not about the battle to retake the Falkland Islands. It is the diary of a British officer serving on a carrier bound from Britain to relieve another carrier already on station at the Falkland Islands - after most all the conflict is over. While many of the anecdotes are of interest and the repetitive and often dreary day-to-day life aboard ship are well depicted, the proliferation of British naval terms and the lack of other than sporadic drama do tend to make this a bit dull at times. The return trip to England features a stopover in Florida and I found some of the comments on American life at that time really fascinating.
