About the Book

It’s 1942 and the battle for the Coral Sea is raging with the Japanese naval forces at the peak of their southward thrust. On a lonely atoll in the Indian Ocean one of the gravest military crimes is about to take place when the gunners of the Ceylon Garrison Artillery attempt to compel their British commander to surrender to the Japanese …
Noel Crusz has uncovered an extraordinary story which the military sought to keep a secret. A story of poor leadership, racism and a seriously flawed court martial, against the background of changing attitudes to colonialism and a growing desire for self-government throughout Asia.
