Books Info:

The Ultimate Sacrifice free pdf The Ultimate Sacrifice: The World War II Battleship is a revealing account of the tragedy of the sinking of the mighty battleship HMS Royal Oak told through declassified photographs and naval records, news reports of the day and statements from those who survived the horror of that fateful day. This book is written in the memory of the author's late Uncle, Commander Ralph Lennox Woodrow-Clark RN, who died when the Royal Oak was sunk along with 832 of his fellow officers and crewmates. We follow the author on a personal pilgrimage to the site of the tragedy, fulfilling a schoolboy promise to his mother to visit his Uncle's war grave. The Ultimate Sacrifice is a fascinating and moving journey into the hard facts, the heroic characters who battled the elements to rescue survivors and the controversy that surrounds the sinking to this day, including new evidence that a deep-cover German spy may have guided U-47 through the Scapa Flow defences. Bringing together much vital evidence for the first time The Ultimate Sacrifice will prove an invaluable tool to the researcher and an absorbing read for the rest of us. The Ultimate Sacrifice also provides detailed accounts of the sinking of other major Royal Navy ships such as HMS Hood and also the sinking of the much feared German battleship Bismarck. After reading The Ultimate Sacrifice, the reader will invariably agree with the author that "Their courage must never be forgotten". This book is a major step towards fulfilling this aim.
