Main Fleet to Singapore - second hand
An Account of Naval Actions of the Last War by Russell Grenfell. Hardcover in fair condition. Second hand book.
The British navy's experience of battle in the Second World War in the Far East will always be linked with the inglorious loss of The Prince of Wales and Repulse battleships which cleared the way for the Japanese invasion of Malaya. The US navy put up a more spirited fight, but still lost the next major action, The Coral Sea Battle, in 1942. The Allies fortunes only recovered with the Battle of Midway in the same year. With the help of many eye witness accounts, Grenfell records these important naval battles which helped determine the course of the war. 238 pages.
