This is the story of a brother, Russell, who rests in HMAS Canberra in the deep quiet waters of Iron Bottom Sound.

The book is an account from aboard Canberra, as well as three USS cruisers and their men during the war in the Pacific.

It includes a CD of works by Horace Keats, poignant songs of the time sung by Harold Williams and Peter Dawson (baritones) with Horace Keats (piano); Jane Parkin (soprano), Gavin Lockley (baritone) with Clemens Leske (piano); Emma Knott (flute) with David Miller (piano).
