I am of an age where WW2 movies and books and stories were the majority of what I saw while growing up. I always liked military history and have many books on the subject.
So I was pleased to find this fun and apparently true WW2 story about a little US sailing ship that ran for its life at the start of the Japanese invasions and 3,000 miles later found a safe harbor at Australia. I'd never heard of it before, perhaps you have, in any case, for your amusement...
