Must reads, mostly maritime. Cannot put down
F DEL POZO BERENGUER
The Cruel Sea (Penguin World War II Collection)
"Superb. It portrays vivid depictions of the characters and of what ASW in the Atlantic convoys really must have been like. Highly commendable."
"Marvellous novel. Vivid. I rarely read novels, but this one was certainly worth it."
A Voyage For Madmen
"Gripping. It was one of those books which I could hardly put down. It drove me to read "The strange last voyage of Donald Crowhurst" afterwards."
The Proving Ground: The Inside Story of the 1998 Sydney to Hobart Boat Race
"If you like sailing, even if only as an occasional passtime, you will love this books. It keeps the reader in tension throughut the whole story. Itīs a real account."
In the Heart of the Sea: The Epic True Story that Inspired 'Moby Dick'
"I donīt have words to describe how good this book is. The true events it describes are breathtaking. A very easy and quick read. I wish there were more books like this one."
All Brave Sailors: The Sinking of the Anglo-Saxon, August 21, 1940
"Awesome. Do yourself a favour. Read this book. I am full of admiration for the protagonists of this true and incredible (no contradiction meant) story."
The Strange Last Voyage of Donald Crowhurst (Sailor's Classics)
"Read this after (or perhaps before?) "A voyage for madmen"."
The Voyage of the Armada: The Spanish Story
"I picked a book about the Armada, which happened to be this one, and I am very glad I did, because it reads like a novel. Read it! You will not regret it."
Empires of the Sea: The Final Battle for the Mediterranean, 1521-1580
"This is a must. I always recommend it heartily to anyone who cares to listen. The part on the siege of Malta is like a thriller."
THE GUINESS BOOK OF NAVAL BLUNDERS
"How can this book be out of print? It is a great and amusing read. Very enjoyable, and you learn history."
Hooked: A True Story of Pirates, Poaching and the Perfect Fish
"Very exciting true and recent story about poachers in Australian waters. A page turner."
Over the Edge of the World
"VERY good read. Perhaps the most awesome adventure in maritime history. Modern narration based on Pigafettaīs account."
A Land So Strange: The Epic Journey of Cabeza De Vaca
"As thrilling a story as "In the heart of the sea". Historical."
The Last Voyage of Columbus: Being the Epic Tale of the Great Captain's Fourth Expedition, Including Accounts of Mutiny, Shipwreck, and Discovery
"Good background setting. Hollywood could not have conceived such an adventure. Hurricanes, rowing through the Caribean and much more."
The Battle for the Falklands
"By far the best book I have read about the Falklands, and I have read several."
"A delightful little book about how the ability to accurately determine oneīs longitude at sea was obtained."
