Send Her Victorious by Michael Apps

Can someone who has, or has read this book, please tell me how detailed the coverage of air operations is in it, particularly in regards to Operation Pedestal?

Thanks in advance!

Steve,
Consider it more of an overview of the carrier in combat, rather than a detailed account of the aircrew combat report.
Chapters:
1. Legend is Born (p19)
2. The Bismarck Chase (p37)
3. Kirkenes and Petsamo (p52)
4. North Russia Convoy duty (p60)
5. Malta Convoy (p85)
6. The Invasion of North Africa (p100)
7. Pacific Interlude (p113)
8. Operation Tungsten (p126)
9. The Eastern Front (p143)
10. The British Pacific Fleet (p157)
11. Palembang (p166)
12. Operation Iceberg (p185)
13. The Desperate Days to Peace (p204)
14, 15, 16 ...post-war (p217 - 245)

As for the Pedestal Convoy, very few aircrew are mentioned by name with respect to air-to-air combat, though some of the Albacore crews serving in action stations onboard the carrier are detailed in descriptions.

Regards,
...geoff

Thank you very much, Geoff! Exactly the info I was hoping to find out before making a decision to purchase it.
