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.

The sunken ships of Truk Lagoon were largely forgotten about until 1969, when an expedition by Jacques Cousteau located and filmed many of the wrecks. The resulting TV Documentary, Lagoon of Lost Ships, went viral. Truk's secret was out - and the beautiful wrecks, untouched since WWII, have proved an irresistible lure for thousands of divers each year since then. 

This wonderfully illustrated book, lists each of the wrecks with background information and either photographs or diagrams.
