Giant and impressive white, P&O's flagship the SS Canberra was once a last salute to a bygone period of opulence at the same time she launched into her maiden voyage, For a decade she carried passengers among Britain and Australia, a 90-day voyage of pampering and decadence. yet in March 1982, Britain went to battle to shield the Falkland Islands and the SS Canberra stumbled on herself, surreally, requisitioned as a troop send to hold the Marines and Paratroops into battle.

Against all odds she surived, taking part in an essential position as a medical institution send, on the finish of the warfare she arrived again in Southampton to a heroes welcome, the place she grew to become fondly referred to as the nice White Whale.

This is the intense and, as but, untold tale of ways the workforce of a luxurious ocean liner: waiters, chefs, nurses and cleaners, discovered themselves unexpectedly thrust onto front line. a truly unusual technique to visit battle is a candid and pleasing tale, drawing from first hand bills and formerly unpublished information, of the heroic braveness of normal British women and men within the face of serious adversity, on the outpost of empire.

For example, the imbeddinq of K4 in Figure 5-4 has four regions.

Now assume the result holds for all connected graphs with €ewer than q edqcs, and let G be a connected graph with q edges, p vertices, and r regions for an imbedding in So.
