HMAS Canberra Casualty of Circumstance by Kathryn Spurling

Last items in stock

This is the story of HMAS Canberra from the time the ship was commissioned in 1928 to the last terrifying moments when HMAS Canberra’s fate was sealed.
 Some may know the fate of HMAS Canberra on 9 August 1942 in a war-ravaged Pacific Ocean. World War II was in full force and it was about to overwhelm those  onboard the Australian Navy cruiser. But the events that lead to Canberra’s demise on that dark night are not so well known – until now.

A tribute to the 84 men whose lives were lost, this book tells their stories and those of the men who survived – all share their motivations for joining the Navy and tell what it was like onboard.
