His words and photos grasp the alpine experience in its varied forms that were shared with each climbing partner over the years and which is open to anyone with the same commitment.

'Palau has long held a fascination for scuba divers from around the world due to the beauty that lies below the waves of our small island nation. ... However, there is another story that lies below the waves in Palau that shares little of the limelight that the reefs and wildlife are accorded; a story that has its beginnings in 1920 when the League of Nations awarded Japan control of Palau.  ...  Over 70 years from the commencement of Operation Desecrate One these once iconic symbols of Japanese naval power have been largely forgotten. ... With the publication of this book and the detailed descriptions, history and drawings of the wrecks as they are today, this is set to change.' Extract from Foreword by Yositaka Adachi, Governor, Koror State
