Description
Illustrated throughout with photos and period art depicting ships, shipwrecks, charts, and historical figures, this book tells the stories of 21 vessels that have met disastrous ends, from Henry VIII's 16th-century flagship Mary Rose. raised from the sea and now on display in Portsmouth, to Ernest Shackleton's Endurance, still buried beneath the Antarctic ice. Naval historian Sam Willis vividly describes the history of world shipping and advances in naval and maritime technologies and safety. He also considers the modern moral and ethical dilemmas of shipwreck hunting and the future of archaeology at sea.

"The stories of these wrecks are fascinating and well told—even poetic. But it is what each tells us of the maritime world, naval history and the nature of warfare at sea that gives this selection its great interest and shows the erudition and intelligence of the author."—Oliver Walton
