Mutiny: A History of Naval Insurrection by Leonard F. Guttridge

From the early days of fighting sail to the modern steel machines of the world's navies, sailors have always endured many hardships. Isolation, claustrophobic living conditions, seemingly endless voyages, monotonous routines, and lack of communication beyond the sea vessel are reason enough to inspire dissatisfaction in a single member of a crew. For dissatisfaction to swell into open rebellion and mutiny is a ship captain's worst fear. In Mutiny: A History of Naval Insurrection, author Leonard E Guttridge provides a fascinating account of the history behind the most dreaded of military terms. From Magellan's expedition to circumnavigate the globe and the infamous HMS Bounty and battleship Potemkin insurrections to the demonstrations aboard the United States aircraft carriers Kitty Hawk and Constellation, this gripping narrative delivers voyage after voyage of life and death situations where men dared to defy military authority.
