Reviews

Another stirring story of WWII that in days gone by would have been handled by someone like author Paul Brickhill. No student of WWII history should pass this one by... -- Paul Norman Books Monthly 17/02/2016 The author's informative, yet engaging style will grip the reader's attention ... Whether one is interested in the ship itself, life at sea or naval history, this is a brilliant and exhaustive chronicle of Belfast's varied service. -- Captain Peter Hore Warships International 17/02/2016 Brian Lavery's style is, as we have come to expect from his past work, succinct and very readable, even gripping when describing the ship in action. ... This is a thoroughly worthwhile volume for those interested both in the ship herself and in war at sea in the mid-20th century. -- Roger Marsh Ships in Scale 02/03/2016
