From the Back Cover:

The fascination of shipwrecks is in the tales they produce of treasure and tragedy. They also give us a unique window into our past, the rare opportunity to understand the mariners of days gone by and the ships in which they sailed.
Inside you can: discover why shipwrecks are important resources, and why they have fascinated people for centuries; learn how shipwrecks happen, and see what wrecks look like on the ocean floor; learn what happens in the final minutes before a ship goes down; chart the changes in ships from the earliest vessels to the Medieval period; trace the development of the ship from Medieval trading vessels to the ships of exploration that crossed the Atlantic and Indian Oceans; trace the development of ships through the twentieth century, and discover how we can learn surprising facts from relatively modern shipwrecks.
There are also timelines and maps, as well as inserts on famous divers such as Jacques Cousteau, Mel Fisher, and Bob Ballard, along with color photos, color maps, and much more.

About the Author:

With over 50 history books in print, Angus is a widely recognised and much-published historian. While he specialises in military and naval history he has also written numerous more general history books, designed to make the subject more accessible to a wider audience. Uniquely he has been able to draw on his expertise as a senior museum curator who has worked on both sides of the Atlantic, as well as on his academic training as a historian and as a maritime archaeologist. His latest book is a full-length biography: Blackbeard: America's Most Notorious Pirate, which is published by Wiley & Sons. of New York (June 2006) Angus is also just finished writing a history of the Allied landings at Salerno in September 1943 for the British publisher Pen & Sword, and he is currently working on a new project, with the working title of Supership: The Quest for the Renaissance Battleship. Angus lives in Edinburgh, in Scotland.
