Meet the Author

"History is about stories. I find them fascinating but many books can be very dry, so I try to focus on the story, the people and the challenges.These are written as introductions. Entire books could be (and have been) written on these topics, so if one of my essays piques your interest, there are many more resources out there to tell the whole story with far more detail."

    high recommendation

    This book provides a brief overview of Brunel's three ships. There is enough information to help the reader to decide if he or she wants to know more about any of the ships.
    I found it stimulating enough to keep.
