Ships, not individuals alone, possess the potential to change history. Often taking on personalities of their own, ships throughout the ages have affected how we live today. From the great fleets of the Persians, Greeks, and Romans to the Phoenician merchantmen, from the armadas of Spain and England to single vessels or small expeditions of two, three, or four ships, seafaring vessels have made their impact on history. In this richly detailed book, noted historian A.A. Hoehling profiles these famous ships: the clippers, the Great Eastern, the USS Monitor, the RMS Lusitania, the ships of Dunkirk, and the USS Arizona. The author provides vivid descriptions of the ships and the people associated with them, bringing to life the expeditions, battles, victories, and defeats of these magnificent voyagers.
