Price £17.95 YOU PAY ONLY £8.95 (+ £1.50 p&p*)

Roy Smallpage chronicles the WWII carnage at Truk Lagoon in the Pacific, when the US Air Force sank 45 Japanese ships, and describes in detail the wrecks at a site which has acquired legendary status among divers around the world. Most of the ships sunk were merchantmen, so a wealth of military supplies, from bullets and gas masks to vehicles and planes, remain where they settled in 1944. The book is illustrated by archival black and white prints, contemporary colour photographs and ship diagrams. 160mm x 230mm softback. 160pp.
