10 Ships That Rocked the WorldBook - 2015
"Ships have sailed through human history for thousands of years. Sometimes, their dramatic voyages have even changed the course of the world. For centuries, ships have brought cultures together in peace or conflict, played a role in wars and revolutions, and transformed societies. Climb on deck for 10 ocean adventures, starting with the groundbreaking exploits of Zheng He's 15th-century treasure ships and navigating unknown waters with Vasco da Gama's São Gabriel. Sail on the Lady Penrhyn with the first convicts exiled to Australia, and on USS Susquehanna's pivotal mission to Japan. Witness the tense confrontations of the Holocaust survivor ship Exodus 1947 in Israel and the Komagata Maru in Canada, and the standoff when Somali pirates seized the oil tanker Sirius Star" -- provided by publisher.
