Not yet rated | write a review

Millennia of conflict have made famous the names of great naval battles -- Salamis, Actium, Lepanro, the Spanish Armada, Trafalgar, Tsushima, Jutland, Pearl Harbor Midway, the Battle of the Atlantic. In lively text and with more than eighty full-colour images and one hundred black-and-white photographs, Lost Warships traces the history of war at sea from the beginnings of naval combat in the ancient Mediterranean and on China''s rivers and lakes through to the lost ships and sea battles of the Second World War.

Lost Warships is a tour through that great, rarely visited museum on the ocean''s floor and the lost warships that lie there. It also brings to life archaeologists'' reconstructions of the past, including legendary events such as the last desperate sea battle of Antony and Cleopatra, Kublai Khan''s seaborne invasion of medieval Japan and the aircraft carrier Saratoga, sunk by a nuclear explosion in 1946 in the first naval tests of atomic weapons. Clearly written, comprehensive and meticulously researched, this stunning book is a must-read for anyone interested in history, war and the sea.
