Thanks for the review and recommendation; ordered.
Here are two others you may enjoy:
- Cruiser: The Life and Loss of HMAS Perth and Her Crew by Mike Carlton http://www.amazon.com/Cruiser-Life-Loss-Perth-ebook/dp/B004T6F04M
- A Very Rude Awakening: The Night The Japanese Midget Subs Came To Sydney Harbour by Peter Grose http://www.amazon.com/Very-Rude-Awakening-Japanese-Midget/dp/1741752191/ref=sr_1_cc_1?s=aps&ie=UTF8&qid=1368461887&sr=1-1-catcorr&keywords=a+very+rude+awakening
"Cruiser" is an excellent encapsulation of the origins and WWII history of the Australian Navy along with the compelling story of a particular ship and it's crew. I found both books intriguing in regards to the pre-war/war-time relationship between Australia and England. Both offer in-depth insights into that relationship that I hadn't seen addressed in the U.S. very well.
