'Readers look for and admire good writers and great writing. They will find it, in spades, in The Battle of the Bismarck Sea.' - The Canberra Times

In the thick of World War II, during the first week of March 1943, Japan made a final, desperate lunge for control of the South West Pacific. In the ensuing Battle of the Bismarck Sea, a force of land-based Australian and American planes attacked a massive convoy of Japanese warships. The odds were against them. But a devastating victory was won and Japan's hopes of regaining the initiative in New Guinea destroyed.

More importantly for Australians, the victory decisively removed any possibility that Australia might be invaded by Japanese forces. It was, for us, one of the most significant times in our history - a week when our future was profoundly in the balance.

Bestselling author Michael Veitch tells the riveting story of this crucial moment in history - how the bravery of young men and experienced fighters, renegades and rule-followers, overcame some of the darkest days of World War II.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Readers look for and admire good writers and great writing. They will find it, in spades, in The Battle of the Bismarck Sea ... The Battle of the Bismarck Sea is a superb achievement. In Turning Point, Michael Veitch rescued, with superlative skill, the battle of Milne Bay from obscurity. With this book he has done it again, perhaps with even greater success. -- Michael McKernan * The Canberra Times *
