Description

Dangerous Seas Is a collection of four books and includes: (1) Dangerous Voyaging shows what it was like to be at sea during the Second World War: particularly in the early years when the u-boats had the upper hand and naval escorts were in such short supply that the merchant ships had little or no protection. And, if this weren't bad enough, a seaman's wages stopped when his ship was sunk; on the grounds that he had ceased working for his employer. (2) Dangerous Voyaging 2 is the sequel to Dangerous Voyaging. (3) Fortunes of War describes what happened to the numerous ships listed in Volume XIV of The Marine Observer of 1937, and also tells the stories of three wartime voyages made by a Blue Funnel midshipman. (4) Mined Coasts - Although up to a million mines were laid during WWII, and were a constant menace to vessels sailing in coastal waters, the general public has never been aware of the massive toll they took on both ships and lives. A Fishing Vessel section is included. Over a ten year period Ian M. Malcolm's articles appeared in the Nautical Magazine of Glasgow. Since the magazine ended publication Ian continued to hone his research skills and has been prolific in his output, feeling the urgency, in his 80s and 90s, to inform the world of the great loss of life and suffering of non-military seamen during WWII. Ian is meticulous in his fact checking and his work is of the highest standard. Dangerous Seas is now available in the British Library Catalogue.
