4.0 out of 5 stars
Premiere excellence for any serious researcher of ships!, May 30 1999
Ever asked the question, "What was that ship? When did it sail? Why do we know of it? If you buy this book, your questions will be answered. From the Aaron Manby to the Zuytdorp, this book has them all. Even a list of "literary ships" such as the Africa Queen and the Caine.
"Ships of the World" describes each ship in detail including it's dimensions, builder, hull, origin, and ultimate disposition.
A "must" for any naval historian.
