Book Description and Condition

Book description and condition

The loss of both ships on the night of 19 November 1941 with Sydney's full war compliment of men and boys sparked a growing mystery spanning sixty-six years for Australia's most famous fighting ship and for one of Germany's best known raiders. Using the most sophisticated and modern technology, the 2015 expedition to the deep-water Indian Ocean wreck sites surfaced

with a wealth of new/historical, archaeological and scientific information while capturing and preserving the memories of those lost. This book presents stunning underwater photography and fascinating new discoveries, with inspiring and heart-rending personal accounts of wartime service on the ships, and their fierce battle with the loss of over 700 souls from both sides. 285 x 245mm (landscape), pp. 376, black & white and colour plates throughout, notes, bibliography, The 2015 Expedition Team, contributors, index. FINE/FINE.
