Coming this November from Casemate Publishing, The Most Dangerous Moment of the War - Japanís Attack on the Indian Ocean, 1942 by John Clancy tells the story of the events of the dramatic but little known episode in which a major catastrophe was only narrowly averted, but in which over a thousand mainly British lives were lost, including the sinking of HMS Cornwall and HMS Dorsetshire.
In early April 1942, a little-known chapter of World War II took place, said by Sir Winston Churchill to be Ďthe most dangerous moment of the warí when the Japanese made their only major offensive westwards into the Indian Ocean. Historian, Sir Arthur Bryant said, ĎA Japanese naval victory in April 1942 would have given Japan total control of the Indian Ocean, isolated the Middle East and brought down the Churchill governmentí.

This hard-cover book (ISBN: 9781612003344) is comprised of 208 pages, has the dimensions of 152 x 228 mm (6 inches x 9 inches) and pre-order is available now at the Casemate website for £19.99 ($20.20 USD) plus shipping.
