Shipwrecks, Storms And Collisions On The Atlantic.
Acclaimed maritime scholar William Flayhart has spent much of the last forty years in search of material from which to create colourful narratives. Many of us know the stories of the Titanic and the Lusitania - both tragedies causing loss of life whilst making the ships themselves immortal but there are also many little-known accounts of extraordinary survivals at sea. Here Flayhart offers classic ocean liner disaster stories while bringing to light compelling lesser-known episodes which illustrate man's ongoing battle with the sea.
