The book tells the reader about the catastrophes of the Wilhelm Gustloff, Lancastria, Mont Blanc, Sultana and Dona Paz ships. Contents of the book as follows - Introduction; In the hands of God; America's Atlantic; The Halifax explosion; War at sea; Britain's darkest hour; The age of total loss; Ten thousand dead; Worse than Titanic.
The author of the publication has presented the content in a very concise manner putting lots of useful and interesting information in a logical format. The actual causes of the disasters occurring at sea can be very different - from icebergs to the torpedoes; the vessels can get sunk by fires and explosions on board, flooding and capsizing, storms, hurricanes, collisions and, of course, human error.
With marine disasters, there are real stories of the people as well as the vessels. There are stories of human tragedies, war, cowardice and heroism, sacrifice and greed. There were also some stories or survival and rescue, but only for a very luck few... In short, we may conclude that this is an excellent source of information for the people interested in naval history, war, naval battles, and marine vehicles in general. Will be appreciated by any sea lover.
