Pfennigwerth, Ian:  Tiger Territory: The Untold Story of the Royal Australian Navy in Southeast Asia From 1948-1971
Book Number: 54571
Roseberg Pub., 2008 8vo softcover 317pp index, b/w illus. very good+.Between 1948 and 1971 ships and men of the Royal Australian Navy served with almost unnoticed distinction in defending the newly emerging nations of Malaya, Malaysia and Singapore. In this period of intense diplomatic and military activity in a potentially volatile region, Australia developed its engagement with Southeast Asia and its concept of forward defence. While the Vietnam War loomed ever larger over the region, the RAN played its part in creating the conditions for the peace and prosperity Malaysia and Singapore now enjoy. Tiger Territory tells of the naval men who delivered this underappreciated achievement, and recounts their previously unpublished experiences.

Johnson-Allen, John:  They Couldn't Have Done It Without Us - The Merchant Navy in the Falklands War
Book Number: 54983
Seafarer Books 2011 First Edition 8vo. Softcover. near fine. 251pp. Index. Illustrations. Over seventy merchant ships sailed in the Task force sent by Britain to recapture the Falkland islands in 1982. Some were Royal Fleet Auxiliary vessels, but the majority were STUFT-ships taken up from trade-and the officers and crew of these merchant vessels, all volunteers, suddenly found themselves thrust into a war zone in the South Atlantic. Remarkably little has been written about the part played by the Merchant navy, summarised by the official history of the campaign as 'an impenetrable mystery, girt about by seasickness' This book lifts the curtain on that mystery, to reveal something of the experiences of the merchant seamen and women who made possible the retaking of the Falkland islands. John Johnson-Allen, maritime historian and former merchant naval officer, combines personal accounts, documents and comment to bring to life the events of the Falklands War, as seen from the merchant ships that played such a vital role in that conflict.
