HMAS Sydney - The mystery of Australia's greatest naval disaster

Mike Lefroy

On 19 November 1941 the HMAS Sydney II sank. On board were 645 Australian sailors. None survived. The location of the wreck was a mystery. This is the story of the battle that sank the Sydney, of the Second World War, and of wartime tricks. It is the story of the clues that were pieced together to lead to the discovery of the watery grave of the young Australians. Written for upper primary to lower secondary students.

Soft cover, illustrated, visual timeline, 32 pages.
