The enthralling story of the HMS Queen Elizabeth, the Royal Navys largest ever warship

65,000 tons. 280 metres long. A flight deck the size of sixty tennis courts. A giant piece of Sovereign British territory thats home to up to fifty Aircraft. HMS Queen Elizabeth is the biggest ship in the Royal Navys history and one of the most ambitious and exacting engineering projects ever undertaken in the UK.

But its her ships company of 700, alongside an air group of 900 air and ground crew that are Big Lizzies beating heart. And How to Build an Aircraft Carrier tells their story.

From before the first steel of her hull was cut, Chris Terrill has enjoyed unprecedented access to the Queen Elizabeth and the men and women who have brought her to life. From Jerry Kyd, the ships inspirational captain, to Cdr Nathan Gray, the first pilot to land Britains new stealth jet fighter on her deck, Terrill has won the trust and confidence of the ships people.

How to Build an Aircraft Carrier tells the story of Britain at its best: innovative, confident, outward-looking and world-beating.
