Four Weeks in May: A Captain’s Story of War at Sea
Four Weeks in May HMS Coventry’s job during the Falklands War was to provide early warning of approaching enemy aircraft. On 25 May, Coventry was attacked by two Argentine Skyhawks and hit by three bombs. Her Captain, David Hart Dyke, himself badly burned, climbed down her starboard side and into a life-raft. This book tells his story.
