Torpedo: Kiwis at Sea in World War II
by Matthew Wright

Following on from the great success of Escape: Kiwi POWs on the run in World War 2, this is another accessible and fascinating account of New Zealanders' extraordinary exploits during World War 2. Torpedo is an anthology of fascinating first-person stories about New Zealand's naval and convoy work in World War 2, most of them from unpublished manuscripts, including the Navy Museum archive. Each is a ripping good yarn and war historian Matthew Wright puts each story into context with historical background. It includes stories about the Battle of the River Plate, the German raid on Nauru Island, submarine tales, the Neptune tragedy, the escape from Singapore and many other dramatic tales.
