Summary
Ships have always played an important role in shaping human destiny, ranging from the Golden Hind to the HMS Beagle to the USS Indianapolis, and this comprehensive and very readable encyclopedia covers more than one thousand of the world's best known and most significant vessels of every size and type. Each ship is described in a vivid short essay that captures its personality as well as its physical characteristics, construction, and history, from the drawing board to the scrap yard or museum. Even fictional ships and boats, such as the African Queen, are included, whilst chronologies offer a perspective on underwater archaeological sites, naval warfare, maritime technology exploration, and disasters at sea. Ships of the World is not only an invaluable reference but fascinating reading for anyone who has the slightest interest in history or who simply likes messing about in boats, whether on the water or from a comfortable chair at home
