From the cover: The Age Of Invincible tells the story of a ship that defined a difficult era of change for the modern Royal Navy. It is also the story of many key people who played parts in that. HMS Invincible emerged from a period of national upheaval in the 1960s that forced a painful alteration of course on the Navy. Her early career, including her crucial role in the Falklands War, was eventful to say the least, and certainly put her in the public eye. She evolved too as the Cold War ended, the world changed, and the Royal Navy began to redefine itself again for a new age in a way that would not have been possible without HMS Invincible.
