About this Item

Here is death and destruction from the sea. Created as only a Local Authority with numerous official resources at their disposal could do. The most comprehensive account of this terrible disaster published: some 5cwt of original records -- incl. the message logs of fire brigade, police, ambulance services and the three armed services -- were combed to give a solid foundation in fact. With alleged global warming and rises in sea-level and the policies of letting nature decide the coastline and building on floodplains, could this happen again? HB. Green cloth boards with gilt lettering to spine; has very slight wear and rubbing around edges and corners. Has gift inscr. & date on f.fep; eps slightly tanned. 883 pages incl. index, table of tide levels, 10 maps, 12 weather maps showing the meteorological progression, 34 illus. of the disaster, + colour frontis. and a folding map in pocket at back of book.
