HMS Royal Oak was a Revenge-class battleship of the British Royal Navy, infamously torpedoed at anchor by the German submarine U-47 on 14th October, 1939

This book by Dilip Sarkar, a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society, provides a completely new and unique perspective on the tragedy. Moved by the Royal Oak story whilst on an expedition to dive Orkney's famous German naval wrecks, the author has since traced the families of various souls lost with the battleship, that fateful night in 1939.

Their photographs and stories are representative of all their shipmates. Interviews with survivors bring the dramatic events vividly to life, emphasising the human tragedy and experience of war.
