Summary The harrowing tale of HMS Glamorgan, the only ship to survive a hit by Exocet during the Falklands War in 1982, told by her Navigating Officer. In the course of this bitter conflict Glamorgan faced missiles, bombs, shells and rockets. Personal accounts recall these attacks, culminating with the Exocet hit and the resulting life and death struggle to save the ship, which came perilously close to sinking. The aftermath and the traumatic stress experienced by those who lost shipmates brings home the gruesome reality of war. Written by one who experienced at first hand that reality, Ordeal by Exocet vividly recalls the war in the South Atlantic twenty years on.
