Descripción

For three hundred years or more the Royal Navy really did «Rule the Waves», in the sense that during the numerous wars with our overseas enemies, Britishfleets and individual ships more often than not emerged victorious from combat. This book highlights a sample array of disasters, ocurring when men-of-war faced the ultimate test of the elements and lost. This unique book presents a fascinating insight into the malevolent power of the sea and storms over man’s creation and dominion, chronicling some of the most dramatic shipwrecs ever to have ocurred in our seas.
