Come Hell and High Water

Author(s): Jean Hood

Nautical | History

The drunken captain of an unseaworthy ferry who refuses to return to port in bad weather because he would have to refund the fares; the naval captain who entrusts the navigation of his frigate to a passenger; the crew who callously ignored freezing survivors on a dismasted wreck; the passengers who seriously believed a ship could be unsinkable. All these stories and more are told in gripping detail by the author, an expert in shipping losses and disasters, in this new collection of grimly fascinating tales of real events at sea from the age of sail to the modern day.
