Summary
It is no surprise that the barbarity and evil that came in the wake of the wreck of the Batavia has inspired books, radio and TV documentaries, plays and an opera. Lust, jealously, greed, madness, deception, rape, murder - all the classic ingredients conspire in the Batavia story to produce a scenario that is truly frightening
