No Pleasure Cruise (T Frame)

In 1901 Australia's fledgling Federal Government assumed the responsibility for the new nation's defence. Their first task was to take the aged and obsolete remnants of the colonies' navies and create a national navy to defend the island's coastal waters and overseas trade routes.

Author and naval historian Dr Tom Frame charts the emergence of the Royal Australian Navy from it's beginnings alongside the Royal Navy, to a postwar growth with influence from the United States Navy, to its established role today as an independent and capable maritime force.

Soft cover, 336 pages.
