This issue, we’re giving away three copies of the HMS Belfast Pocket Manual, courtesy of Osprey.
A familiar sight on the Thames at London Bridge, HMS Belfast is a Royal Navy light cruiser, launched in March 1938. Belfast was part of the British naval blockade against Germany, and from November 1942 escorted Arctic convoys to the Soviet Union, as well as assisting in the destruction of the German warship Scharnhorst.
In June 1944, Belfast supported the Normandy landings, and in 1945 was redeployed to the British Pacific Fleet. After the war, she saw action in the Korean War and a number of other overseas conflicts. She has been part
of the Imperial War Museum since 1978, with 250,000 visitors each year.
This fascinating book comprises a series of documents that give information on the building of the ship, her wartime service history,
and life on board.
