Hi there! I'm hoping to weasel my way into graduate school for military history in Fall of 2010, and for my sample essay, I'm going to be writing on the Indian Ocean Raid against Ceylon in April of 1942. I have The Most Dangerous Moment, The Somerville Papers, Bloody Shambles, Carrier Observer, the relevant volumes of the British Official Histories, Midway: the Battle that Doomed Japan (which has a little bit on Ceylon), and some more general secondary sources. I've also ordered a number of documents from the PRO: the relevant battle summary (15), the reports on the loss of Hermes, Dorsetshire, Norfolk, and Vampire, the RAF summary of the action, and some other similar stuff.
Does anyone have any further recommendations for source material?
