The Pacific Ocean, 1945.
In Europe the war is almost over, but Japanese forces remain undefeated … and seemingly unbeatable.
But high in the sky above the islands of Sakishima Gunto, a flight of Corsair fighters from a British aircraft carrier is fighting a grim and desperate war of attrition against the enemy.
A young squadron leader of the Royal Naval Volunteer Reserve is waging an internal war too: he must decide whether to accept a permanent commission in the Royal Navy, or honour his promise to his father that he will return home after the war.
But when his aircraft is shot down, suddenly the quest to survive is all that matters.
As he searches for his aircraft carrier, he witnesses the desperate fighting from a whole new perspective. And when a terrifying new weapon is unleashed on the world, he comes to realise that this war is far from over…
AIRCRAFT CARRIER is an action-packed World War II military adventure thriller that brings the war in the Pacific vividly to life through the eyes of the men who fought it.

‘One of the best World War II novels I've ever read.’ – Sunday Telegraph
‘John Winton’s account of a Royal Navy Air Squadron Leader during the last months of the Pacific war is vivid and convincing.’ – The Irish Times
