The fate of HMAS Sydney (II), last sighted just before Christmas in 1941 following a battle with a German raider, has been Australia's most enduring maritime mysteries. Then on 16 March 2009 her wreckage was discovered, resolving much of the 67-year-old uncertainty and controversy surrounding the disappearance of the ship and the 674 sons, husbands and fathers who were on board.

This concise, beautifully illustrated book tells the remarkable story of the life, tragic loss and rediscovery of HMAS Sydney (II).
