Shipwreck stories and miraculous rescues After long months of sailing across the oceans, navigating by sun and stars, there on the horizon is the new land.

Find out how the 'graveyard' and treasure of the Batavia was uncovered after 300 years; how Captain Bligh and his castaways suffered in an open boat after the mutiny on the Bounty; how two people survived the wreck of the Loch Ard when everyone else perished. Did Eliza Fraser owe her life to the Aborigines? How do you explain the ancient wreck before the arrival of Captain Cook? Unbelievable but true, these extraordinary stories of disaster and rescue at sea chart the extremes of human experience - from brutality and madness to heroic courage and endurance.

Australia Australian Defence Studies Centre 1998 0731704185 / 9780731704187 1st Edition Glossy Soft Cover Good 12mo 
225 pages. This book is divided into three parts: Part One offers perspectives of how sea power serves current and prospective interests. It begins with an analysis by Drjan Breemer of the US Naval School of the changing context of maritime strategy. From there, experts representing various nations in the region examine factors affecting maritime interests and developments. They cover anticipated economic/political changes likely to affect navies and their missions in the 21st century. Part Two looks at links between force structure and maritime operations in tomorrow’s Asia Pacific. It presents technological and tactical developments that are likely to be employed in tomorrow’s operations, and covers surface, air, submarine and amphibious dimensions. Part Three focuses on the theory, practice and potential of cooperative maritime missions that serve national interests, such as those related to surveillance, safety and peacekeeping, together with confidence and security building measures. The main target ‘audience’ for this book is serving military personnel and representatives of forward looking industries that must keep abreast of strategic and technological factors affecting maritime operations and force structures in the longer term. The ‘what navies will be doing, and what they will need to buy’ core of the book provides valuable insights for industry.

One of Australia's favourite sporting events, the 1998 Sydney to Hobart race turned into a disaster thanks to unusually severe weather conditions and crews underprepared for nature's worst. In the end, six men from three different boats died in the race; it's miraculous that number wasn't even greater. In the three days the story took to unfold there was unbelievable courage, both from crews and rescuers, incredible luck, tragedy and survival against the odds. Debbie Whitmont has updated this extraordinary story to include the findings of the coronial inquest into the deaths of the six men, and the moving and often surprising stories of life after the race for the survivors and the families of those who died.
