Publisher Comments:

Lost Treasure Ships of the Twentieth Century tells the gripping story of fortunes both lost and found. The book explores 17 individual ships — selected for their historic importance, the scientific innovation behind their discovery, the personal tragedies that befell the people involved, and the glamour of the extraordinary wealth that they may have once contained. Detailed maps show the location of more than 170 ships, including the Titanic and the Lusitania.

Each wreck encapsulates a moment in time, providing a poignant memorial to its own age. Presented in chronological order, the story of these ships will appeal to historians, scientists, sailors, and everyone interested in the secrets of the sea, the treasures it has yielded, and what still lies on the ocean bed.
