I've been continuing
with Mike Carlton's Cruiser: The Life and Loss of HMAS Perth and Her Crew
. I'm now past the Battle of the Sunda Strait
Tips hat to the Perth,
to the Houston,
to their captains and crews.
Of course this means that I'm now into the sections dealing with the survivors experiences as POWs. The book is quite well written but such unpleasant material is never easy to read. :(
