The Sinking of the Prince of Wales & Repulse

The End of the Battleship Era

By Patrick Mahoney
2014, Pen and Sword
ISBN 1844150755
Paperback, 366 pages

Descripton: On the third day of the war with Japan, two Royal Navy capital ships were sunk off Malaya by air torpedo attack. They had not requested the air support that could have saved them and 840 men died in the battleship HMS Prince of Wales and the battle cruiser HMS Repulse. The authors re-create for the reader not only what happened, but also what it was like for the men involved. They dispose of several myths to explain the events of those confused hours, and address the uncertainty, controversy and strong emotions that surrounded the militarily disastrous sinkings.
