For thousands of years, the perils of the sea have claimed uncountable numbers of victims. Bad weather, rocks and icebergs, equipment failures, human error, and many more types of tragedies have all sent ships to watery graves. While modern technology has made sea-going vessels safer and rescues easier, there still are terrible disasters that occur. With dramatic images and eyewitness accounts--plus the latest facts and figures--this book gives you a close-up look at disasters at sea.
