Description
 
645 men ... why were they left to be killed? Why were hundreds of Germans rescued and no Australias? Why does the Navy deny that Japan was involved? What had been done with the bodies? Why have files been concealed and records destroyed? Who did sink HMAS 'Sydney'?

People have been asking these questions since 'Sydney' went down off Western Australia in 1921. John Samuels finds answers in evidence that could not be destroyed. From coded transmissions, personal accounts, forensic evidence, and records of naval movements, he reconstructs the grim events of 19 November.

More importantly, he asks who is hiding the truth, and why, examining alleged atrocities against their own on the part of Allies from three nations.

His investigations expose top level manipulation in Washington and London to bring Japan and America into war. 'Somewhere Below' rewrites the war history of Britain, Germany, Japan and the Australian Navy, in the lead up to Pearl Harbor.
