New Edition. Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the preface: “From time immemorial men have struggled against the elements in attempting to cross great waters, some have succumbed to the peril of the sea and others have survived. A study of survivors’ reports, many of which are given in this book, has led to improvements in lifesaving equipment and techniques. The lessons learnt from disasters at sea have led to the improved design and operation of ships. Nevertheless, disasters still occur and are frequently due, in part or in whole, to human fallibility. This book is written with the object of eliminating human error, or minimising its effects.”
