Abstract

With new material, this revised edition more fully examines the part the RAN played throughout six years of global conflict. Drawing on recently released official documents and the latest scholarly research, new light is shed on the vital importance of Australia's role in maritime campaigns in every theatre. The coverage ranges from the exploits of individual ships and men to the broad issues of strategy and naval policy. In lively accounts of operations ranging from the Atlantic through the Mediterranean and to the Pacific, both the triumphs and tragedies of war at sea are critically considered. The home front, too, is not neglected and the essential contributions of women and industry are analysed in detail.
