Overview: In 1945, at the end of World War II, the Royal Navy’s carrier fleet proved essential to the post-war world. Royal Navy carriers fought in the Korean War with the UN fleet, in the debacle at Suez, and in British operations in the last days of Empire, in Malaya, Borneo and Aden. But most famously, they were the key to the Royal Navy’s victory in the Falklands campaign, and they went on to fight in the two Iraq wars.
