This is the encyclopedia of all-time naval mistakes from ancient times to the end of the 20th century, enjoyable and interesting to naval enthusiasts, historians, and ordinary readers alike. Both entertaining and informative, here is a look at a history that has been marked as much by incompetence as by gallantry and glory. Some blunders have ended in tragedy. Sometimes they turned into a farce. Sometimes they ended in triumph, despite all odds. Notable examples: The HMS Trinidad torpedoed itself in the Arctic in 1942. In 250BC, with the Battle of Drepana when the Roman admiral Claudius Pulcher attempted to control his spread out fleet from the very rear of it. Radios and cell phones being in short supply in 250BC, the fleet's organization quickly dissipated and the Carthaginians won the day. The author cites at least 50 blunders worthy of note, and they span the range of many centuries. Softcover, 187 pages, well illustrated with 50 b/w photos and drawings. Indexed.
