'On a February night in 1942 the Australian light cruiser Perth and the American heavy cruiser Houston, having survived the disastrous battle of the Java Sea, encountered a strong Japanese convoy moving in to invade Java.  After a fierce engagement with an overwhelming enemy force, both ships were sunk.  Here is the story of a great and terrible battle, as told to the author by those who survived it.'
