The saga of HMAS Perth and USS Houston in the Battle of Sunda Strait has never been fully told. But this is also the story of a son finding his father.

The saga of HMAS Perth and USS Houston in the Battle of Sunda Strait has never been fully told. In 1942, when valour was all that stood between defeat and victory, these two cruisers earned their place in naval history.

Ships from and sold by Detroit Book Exchange. So many stories of incredible courage and suffering have come out of the most devastating war in history and this is yet another well told. Uniquely brave were the submariners, to get into their potential coffin patrol after patrol.

The force consisted of fifty to sixty transports and support ships, the aircraft carrier Ryujo, four heavy cruisers, three light cruisers and numerous destroyers. Their course was south at 15 knots, which would put them off Saint Nicholas Point at about 1. 0pm. The strange thing was that General Schilling, stationed in Batavia and in the same building as the British Liaison Office, was not informed that Perth and Houston were in the harbour.

In 1942 Australia faced its darkest hour, exposed to invasion by a powerful foe. At this time, the great ship HMAS Perth was put under the command of a foreign chief to fight for foreign soil already lost. In her last mission the Perth and her American companion, USS Houston, were destroyed in the Battle of the Sunda Strait, one of the greatest battles in the history of the sea. Over 350 men, most of Perth's crew, went down with the ship. Her survivors were captured by the Japanese.Spanning the entire period of the Second World War, Ship of Courage is the epic tale of the men who served in the Perth. It follows their story from Perth's commissioning as an Australian Navy vessel through the prisoner of war camps of Asia to the Japanese surrender in Tokyo Bay. However, Ship of Courage is much more than a chronicle of a ship and her crew, it is a son's discovery of his father and an exploration of the lives of people caught in the wake of a bloody war, not only those in action but those who waited at home.Ship of Courage is a story to touch the hearts of all who read it. It is a moving personal remembrance and a grand naval story of courage and heroism.
