Fifty Ships that Changed the Course of History: A Nautical History of the World


Fifty Ships that Changed the Course of History is more than just a delight for lovers of the sea - it's a virtual history of the world told through the boats and ships that influenced how and where people lived, with whom they traded, the ideas they exchanged, and how they won and lost battles that set the course of later generations and millennia. Beautifully illustrated with historic artwork and modern photography, it's also a guide to how men and women went to sea or down the river in every age and place.
