Moments after midnight on 1 July 1942, the Montevideo Maru was torpedoed and sunk while carrying over 1,000 Australian soldiers and civilians who had been captured in Rabaul. All died in the worst maritime disaster in Australia's history. Why did it take until 2010 for the sacrifice to be publicly acknowledged? ROD MILLER, who has researched the subject for 16 years, relates this tragic story and its shocking aftermath.
