Four Weeks in May


This is an account of his experiences during the Falklands War by David Hart Dyke who was at the time the commanding officer of HMS Coventry, a British Type 42 destroyer. During the war, the ship's Lynx helicopter attacked and severely damaged the Argentine shop ARA Alférez Sobral, but some days later was itself attacked and sunk by Argentine Skyhawks.

Product Description:

On 25 May 1982, at a critical juncture in the Falklands War, the destroyer HMS Coventry was attacked by Argentinean aircraft. In a devastating strike, she was hit by three bombs, two of which exploded inside her hull, killing 19 of her crew and leaving many others badly injured. Within minutes Coventry had capsized, and would finally sink the following day. It was the first occasion since the Second World War that a British captain and crew had to abandon a stricken ship. This is the highly personal, often harrowing story of Coventry’s war told by her captain.
