Deadly Waters

Helen Chapman’s latest release is the historical narrative fiction Deadly Waters (Australia's Second World War). This action-packed read is sure to attract students who like a tale of adventure and drama sprinkled with humour. The storyline is based on factual accounts from the life of her father, Cliff Hopping - a young seaman in the navy.

Discover how the Australian navy played a powerful part in the war, a part that has been largely ignored in children’s books until now.

Readers will be surprised to learn that during this time German ships laid mines along our eastern coast and that both German and Japanese ships and submarines attacked ships and ports in Australia. Through Cliff’s eyes, readers will also gain insight as to life aboard the destroyer ‘HMAS Australia’ when it became the first ship in history to be targeted by a Japanese suicide bomber!
