Synopses & Reviews
Nothing is more terrifying to a seagoing captain than the specter of mutiny, and nothing more riveting than a tale of mutinous deeds. Here Leonard F. Guttridge provides a casebook of mutinies that have occurred over the past two hundred years-from the Magellan expedition to the U.S. aircraft carrier Constellation.
