Australians In World War I: Royal Australian Navy

Department of Veterans' Affairs SHOP:9781877007538

The Royal Australian Navy began operations almost as soon as war was declared in August 1914. For the next four years, Australian ships could be found in seas and oceans the world over from the South Pacific, to the coast of Africa, up wild New Guinean rivers, throughout the Mediterranean and North Atlantic to the home waters off Australia’s coast. For the navy the war was one of variety. Sailors experienced moments of intense action which contrasted with the more routine periods of patrolling the vast and empty waters between continents. This book, handsomely illustrated with images and maps, describes the range of Australian naval operations from August 1914 until the fleet returned home in 1919. This is a new addition to the series, Australians in World War 1.

Soft cover, photographs, 128 pages.
