The history of the light cruiser, the fifth ship to carry the name Leander, built in the early 1930s.
 
She served as a New Zealand ship from 30 April 1937 to 8 May 1944, and this work details that service, including activities in the Red Sea, Indian Ocean, on South Pacific convoys, hunting enemy raiders, and the night action off Kolombangara where she was torpedoed.
 
This is an all-new production (not a facsimile reprint) of a booklet from the New Zealand in the Second World War Official History series, originally published in 1950.
