   This book written by Arthur Sellwood tells us about one of the most famous naval vessels of the past - MHS Li Wo. Subect ship had been constructed in 1935 with the original intention to be running the passenger transportations on the Yangtze river. Some years after that, in the year 1940, the vessel was requisitioned and subsequently commissioned as HMS Li Wo into the Royal Navy. Quite shortly before the Singapore's surrender which followed in 1942, the vessel got an order to be heading for Batavia (now Jakarta) in Indonesia. The vessel had come under the massive air attach and had to confront the convoy of the Japanese Navy forces that was heading for the Sumatra Island being escorted by a whole squadron of warships. Though HMS Li Wo was armed only with the one four-inch gun and two Lewis guns, they made a decision to attack. After that war, Commander of the vessel was deservedly awarded a posthumous Victoria Cross for the bravery he did demonstrate. In his brilliant work, the author has made a good attempt to piece together nearly unbelievable story of the most decorated small vessel in the Royal Navy fleet, and this is a story which might otherwise got lost in the archives of the Admiralty...
