Fascinating history book,
This review is from: Batavia's Graveyard (Hardcover)
After I saw the wreck of Batavia during my visit to Fremantle in West Australia, I wanted to know more about the ship and the bloody mutiny on it. This book is very well written and with the exactness of a historian the author presents the fascinating history not just of the ship and the 300+ people on it but also of the company behind it and the society in the Netherlands in those times. One of the best history books I have ever read.
