In November 1941 HMAS Sydney, the pride of Australia's wartime fleet, and its crew of 645 disappeared without a trace off the Western Australian coast. All that was known was Sydney had come under fire from the German raider HSK Kormoran, which also sank.
In 2008 after decades of searching, the wrecks of both ships were discovered. This book pieces together the story of Sydney, starting with the crew and the families left behind, the research implemented in the discovery, and finally the forensic analyses and commemorations that followed.
