Very detailed & well written,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Batavia's Graveyard (Kindle Edition)
I was not aware of the story of the 'Batavia', but I imagine it is well known to Australian & Dutch readers. Dash goes into a huge amount of detail in recounting the background to the times and journey of this ship. In someways, the author goes into too much detail, especially the detailed accounts of the horrific killings of men, women & children, but skipping the more gruesome detail as I did is not detrimental to the account.
A scary corner of history, well told
