DVD: A VERY RUDE AWAKENING
WW2 Documentary based on Peter Grose's highly-acclaimed bestselling book A Very Rude Awakening about the surprise Japanese submarine attack on Sydney in 1942. It was a disaster in almost every respect. This is a neutral, balanced, critical analysis of what did happen and why anything that could go wrong, did go wrong. We lay bare the crushing bad luck and mistakes experienced by both sides that turned best-laid military plans into an embarrassing failure with tragic loss of life on both sides. Narrated by Peter Grose. 48 minutes.
