The grandeur and grace of ocean-going vessels is shown in 200 illustrations, while maps help the reader to follow the courses of great seafarers and naval campaigns, and chronologies offer a perspective on underwater archaeological sites, naval warfare, maritime technology, exploration and disasters at sea.
