The fighting ship by Bernard Brett( Book )

1 edition published in 1985 in English and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How have sea battles been fought throughout the centuries, where and by whom, and why? From 480 B.C., when the Greeks fought the Persians at the Battle of Salamis, to the saga of the Falklands in 1982, The Fighting Ship, with its superbly imaginative text and detailed illustrations, answers these questions and many more. In the main part of the book crucial sea engagements are described through the eyes of one of the combatants -- we read, for example, of the paymaster on board the USS Monitor in 1862, on her way to do battle with the CSS Merrimack in Chesapeake Bay and a young sailor's experience of the Spanish Armada . Shorter entries on subjects like navigation, aircraft at sea and surgery at sea, and descriptions of ships and weaponry give an added perspective

A novel about the survivors of an atomic war, who face an inevitable end as radiation poisoning moves toward Australia from the North. The most shocking fiction I have read in years. What is shocking about it is both the idea and the sheer imaginative brilliance with which Mr. Shute brings it off. They are the last generation, the innocent victims of an accidental war, living out their last days, making do with what they have, hoping for a miracle
