      "Death in the Baltic" I just finished this and your review was dead on. It was ok, but could have been a lot better. She kind of jumped around a lot and her writing seemed disjointed at times.

      No word was received about the fate of either ship. It was known they had been lost, but not known how much damage had been inflicted by these ships before they had been lost. Ive read here and there that the belief at the time was that several japanese cruisers and about 4 Destroyers had either been sunk or damaged. It probably made sense to from the limited information available. Ive read somewhere that escape via the east was not really feasible….there were enemy units waiting for the Exeter in that direction. The ship had to do its best with the information available.

      I don’t think he (Helfrich)knew, and in any event the primary objective after escape, was to cause the disruption of the invasion fleet if possible, and not to run away as such. The ultimate fate, or rather the details of the loss of the Houston and the Perth were not actually known until after the war. At the time the last communication received was from the Perth which transmitted at 11:30pm. At that point Perth signalled that they had sighted a Destroyer guarding the entrances to Sunda Strait. This signal was amplified soon after to say the ship was a cruiser.
