A Seaman's Book of Sea Stories

Desmond Fforde,

A Seaman's Book of Sea Stories
 
 

"Just the sort of book one likes to find on a yacht's bookshelf between watches." - Classic Boat Magazine



Set sail on a voyage of discovery of great nautical stories.



These stories range from the Napoleonic wars, via ships that traded under sail round Cape Horn, to what it was like to take charge of a ship in Convoy, serve in the force-ends of a submarine or fly a Corsair against the Japanese. If you have seen WW1 picture of a ship in dazzle camouflage, there is a description of how it came about, and the Dunkirk evacuation is movingly depicted. Lastly there is Uffa Fox's airbone lifeboat: a real masterpiece of design, and what a man!
