Shipwrecks: A Story of Sorrow and Loss

We all know the classic story of a terrible shipwreck.  The Captain must go down with the ship.  Women and children first.  All the men must be heroes, except for those cowards who must be shot by stern officers because they attempted to rush to boats over the bodies of the women and children.  The Captain must be a superhero, a magnificent seaman, cool, brave, facing death and danger, and a living guarantee that the wreck was nobody’s fault.  In an absorbing account, Gillespie tells the story of shipwrecks—their types, their causes, their states of preservation, the salvage attempts, and related legal aspects.
