Ships To Remember is a beautifully illustrated collection of stories about remarkable ships. Some are famous, but many, like the tugs Yelcho, Foundation Franklin, and Turmoil are virtually unknown. The book includes two boats, the Bounty’s launch and the James Caird, which completed two of the most extraordinary voyages in maritime history, but all of the vessels had interesting and dramatic careers and were involved in many major historical incidents. They include the catastrophic sinking and eventual recovery of the Vasa, Nelson’s triumph at the Battle of Copenhagen, Darwin’s epochal voyage on HMS Beagle, and pivotal World War II relief of Malta by the tanker, Ohio.

Book Description History Press, 2016. Condition: New. As the largest ship yet built, in 1906, and holder of the Blue Riband transatlantic speed record, the Lusitania was already notable before it was sunk by a U-boat in 1915. Other less grand vessels, such as the small launches in which Captain Bligh and Ernest Shackleton made spectacular voyages, are also included in this collection of stories of the sea, which is illustrated with line drawings, maps and the paintings of Austin Dwyer.

Book Description The History Press Ltd, United Kingdom, 2016. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Small, scruffy and stinking of seal oil and old blubber, the 458-ton Nimrod wasn t Ernest Shackleton s first choice of ship for his Antarctic Expedition. Similarly unassuming, the squat, two-masted HMS Beagle, more suited to routine naval tasks, didn t look much like a ship that was to help deliver one of the most groundbreaking theories of science ever. Ships to Remember, beautifully illustrated by the paintings of Austin Dwyer, is a collection of stories about remarkable ships, some of which went on to change the course of history. Many are now famous, but some, like the tugs Yelcho, Foundation Franklin and Turmoil are virtually unknown. Two boats in particular, the Bounty s longboat and the James Caird, completed two of the most extraordinary voyages in maritime history. Spanning 1,400 years, this fascinating book includes the catastrophic sinking and eventual recovery of the Vasa, Nelson s triumph at the Battle of Copenhagen, Darwin s epochal voyage on HMS Beagle and the pivotal Second World War relief of Malta by the tanker Ohio.
