Historical Naval Events in Australia and Abroad
Revised and Updated Edition
'The Navy Day by Day' is a comprehensive day-to-day record of naval events involving Australians and Australia from the sixteenth century to the modern day. It presents a minutely-detailed listing of more than 4000 entries concerning the Navy's role in the discovery, settlement and defence of Australia in a format that facilitates easy retrieval of information.
This book is more than a chronicle of the spectacular and the tragic. The Navy has always had important peacetime work to carry out, and these often quieter events also find their place in this book. As well, the textual interest is complemented by the enormous range and detail found in photographs - many of them from rare archives and not previously published. There are sections on great battles, definition of terms, biographies, and an extensive index.
If you are a Navy person, historian, student, researcher or just interested in our maritime heritage, this book will provide you with absorbing reading. It is a standard reference source for the home, library, school, research or commercial organisation.
