Lost Warships
Click for larger image

 

Lost warships is a 3000 year visit to the great, yet under-studied, graveyard, memorial and museum on the ocean's floor, and the warships that lie there. Lavishly illustrated with over 200 images, half in colour, Lost Warships utilises the underwater tools of archaeology to reveal epic stories of naval warfare. The last desperate sea battle of Antony and Cleopatra; Kulai Khan's seaborne invasion of Medieval Japan; a Viking ship sent to the bottom in a fiery death; the Mary Rose, Henry VIII's warship which sank suddenly in the Solent in 1545; the Swan and the Dartmouth, which served both King and Parliament during the seventeenth century; British ships of the line lost in Colonial wars; the ironclad USS Monitor, lost during the US Civil War; the scuttled German High Seas Fleet at Scapa Flow; and the ships sunk by nuclear explosions in 1946 in the first naval tests of atomic weapons.The text places these lost warships in the wider context of the history of war at sea, of valour and cowardice, sacrifice and survival in the face of battle. From famous battles to those long forgotten, the lost warships at the bottom of the sea have a dramatic and significant story to tell.
