Details
Nautical blunders tend to have a finality that is rarely achieved on land. This book, crammed with intriguing anecdotes of misjudgements and oversights looks at: who was responsible for designing the Admiral Popov, the circular Russian battleship that wouldn't steer straight, and why Lord Anson set out to circumnavigate the world with a crew of Chelsea Pensioners?

These and other questions are all answered in this absorbing and entertaining look at the misjudgements and oversights of captains, fleet commanders, strategic planners and ship designers through the ages.

271 pages, illustrated, hardback.
