Inevitably, and often because of human error, accidents have occurred, which have resulted in ships being wrecked. Around Wales there have been at least 14,000 shipwrecks during the last one hundred and fifty years. This book covers the true stories of over fifty shipwrecks. Some involve dramatic Lifeboat rescues and others a tragic loss of life. Generously illustrated with photographs and pictures of the wrecks and artefacts recovered, this book also includes many wreck location maps. These, together with the ship details, provide a useful record and a unique reference book for all who are interested in shipwrecks around Wales. Buchnummer des Verkäufers
