This review is from: The Sinking of the Prince of Wales & Repulse: The End of a Battleship Era? (Paperback)
Having known little about the sinking of these ships I was keen to find out more, and this book answered all the questions I had. Extremely well written it holds the reader throughout, and manages to balance the global picture with the actions of the ships themselves, brought to life with personal accounts of those involved. The detailed analysis of the factors leading to the decisions made is exceptionally worthy of praise, and makes the loss of the ships and loss of lives even more tragic. Full marks for such a good book.
