Dive Truk Lagoon by Rod Macdonald

Truk Lagoon is quite simply the greatest wreck diving location in the world. Scores of virtually intact large WWII wrecks filled with cargoes of tanks, trucks, artillery, beach mines, shells and aircraft rest in the crystal clear waters of the Lagoon – each a man-made reef teaming with life.

The main body of the book consists of 38 mini-chapters on the wrecks that can be dived today. Included are the detailed backgrounds of each vessel, from its construction through its role during the war and how and where it was sunk, with a guide for divers on location of key points of interest. The book finishes with a fascinating round-up of Truk’s aircraft wrecks, many now easy dives in shallow water.
