In ""A Merciful Journey"", Marsden Hordern presents a vivid and compelling account of his full and happy childhood growing up in Sydney through his years serving in the Royal Australian Navy from 1942 to 1947.

He details his rise from a young and callow sublieutenant to a lieutenant in command of his own ship, as he patrolled the shores of Japanese-held territory, assisted beleaguered commandos in Timor, and was finally caught up in the drama of collecting Japanese prisoners of war from the islands. ""A Merciful Journey"" is a delightful memoir of a young man's coming of age in wartime.
