The writer Jack S Harker has penned two very interesting books on these ships - HMNZS Achilles (ISBN 0 00 216961 4, 1980/1981, William Collins Publishers, Auckland) and 'Well Done, Leander' (Pub. 1971 Collins Bros., Auckland) Jack Harker was a wireless operator on board HMNZS Leander. He tells the story well, drawings are by John R Dominy. Worth having in any book collection.
