Pieces of eight? Or a big handful of salted peanuts? This is a jolly roving nautical tarry-handed joy of a book, a compendium of deep sea trivia, an archipelago of anecdotes, and...a devil of a good book! You'll learn a lot, and you'll love every minute of it. Horatio Nelson and Horatio Hornblower would both agree: if you had only one book to take with you on a voyage, it would be the Naval Institute's Handbook of 19th Century Naval Warfare -- but they'd far *rather* be reading this book instead!
