Book description

From the author of Zero Night, another thrilling tale of World War II derring-do – the last great Allied raid of the war, which was a plan hatched in Australia and involved several young British, Australian and New Zealand special forces from a top-secret underwater warfare unit.

July 1945. Eighteen daring young British, Australian and New Zealand special forces from the top-secret underwater warfare unit known as the Sea Devils prepare to undertake three simultaneous and incredibly risky missions against the Japanese.

Using four midget submarines, the raiders creep deep behind Japanese lines to sink two huge warships and sever two vitally important undersea communications cables. If any of the Sea Devils are captured they can expect a gruesome execution.

Mark Felton expertly tells the incredible tale of how this band of young men living on raw courage, nerves and adrenalin repeatedly combated Japanese defences, oxygen poisoning and calamitous submarine disasters to pull off a brilliant missions that earned the last Victoria Crosses of World War II and ensured final victory over Japan.
