AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Charlie, Masa and Alf are best mates – loyal and adventurous. They’re the Fighting Stingrays.

'In between school, swimming and fishing on idyllic Thursday Island, they have a ripper time role-playing bombing missions and other war games. But when Japan enters World War II, the Fighting Stingrays are told that one of their own is now the real-life enemy.

'Drawn into a dangerous game of cat and mouse in the Torres Strait, their friendship and loyalties are tested as the threat of invasion looms closer.'  (Synopsis)
