Comments: AE2's daring passage through the Dardanelles on 25 April 1915 is a success story of the Gallipoli campaign. Ordered to run amuck', for five days AE2 avoided capture before being scuttled after a skirmish with the Turkish torpedo boat Sultanhisar.
In the Australian psyche, the Gallipoli campaign is the action on Gallipoli Peninsula. But an important addition to that land campaign was the part played by the Australian submarine HMAS AE2.
This book examines the history of HMAS AE2 during World War I. Suitable for a younger audience - Primary and Secondary school level and also for teachers.
