Guy Griffiths: The life and times of an Australian Admiral [hard cover]
In his long career in the Royal Australian Navy, Guy Griffiths participated in its emergence from Depression-era stricture, pre-Second World War, to its reinvention in the 1950s and 60s as a capable middle-power force centred on aircraft carriers in the missile age. In this time, he personally experienced the RAN’s darkest days in the face of the Japanese onslaught and its finest hour in the Philippines Campaign of the Second World War, and its close involvements in the Korean War and then the Vietnam War. He witnessed the realities of war in positions of increasing responsibility.
