Abstract:

"The wartime loss of Australia's pride, HMAS Sydney, with all hands on board, remains among the great riddles of modern maritime history - one that has teased authorities, naval experts and researchers for more than six decades." "For author Glenys McDonald, Sydney's final voyage - and its ill-fated clash with the German raider Kormoran - heralded a personal quest that took many unexpected turns. Her struggle to piece together a labyrinth of facts, theories and, in many cases, elusive false trails makes for compelling reading in this account. Strange cryptograms, hearsay and new evidence from German survivors of the catastrophe add momentum to a tale of hope, disappointment, and contradiction."--BOOK JACKET.
