The Ark Royal was World War II’s most famous aircraft carrier. Her survival in the face of Nazi Luftwaffe bombing raids and U-boat attacks was a testament to her ingenious design and courageous crew. Over the course of the war, she hunted down some of the Nazis’ most feared warships. The Nazis were determined to sink her, but the crew of this ‘lucky’ ship continued to thwart their efforts.
