Diving the Thistlegorm : The Ultimate Guide to a World War II Shipwreck, Hardback Book

Diving the Thistlegorm : The Ultimate Guide to a World War II Shipwreck Hardback

Hardback

Description

Diving the Thistlegorm is a unique in-depth look at one of the world's best-loved shipwrecks, the World War II British Merchant Navy steamship, featuring award-winning underwater photography.

In this highly visual guide, cutting edge photographic methods enable views of the famous wreck and its fascinating cargo which were previously impossible.

Sitting upright in 30m of clear, inviting Red Sea waters, the ship is packed with the materials of war.

Largely complete lorries, trucks, motorbikes, aircraft spares and airfield equipment are crammed into the forward holds and the remains of other vehicles lie amongst boxes of ammunition in the exploded aft holds.

Often referred to as an underwater museum, the wreck fascinates visitors for dive after dive.

The book is the culmination of decades of experience, archaeological and photographic expertise, many hours underwater, months of computer processing time, and days spent researching and verifying the history of the ship and its cargo.

For the first time, Diving the Thistlegorm brings the rich and complex contents of the wreck together, identifying individual items and illustrating where they can be found.

As the expert team behind the underwater photography, reconstructions and explanations take you through the wreck in incredible detail, you will discover not only what has been learned but also what mysteries are still to be solved.

Limited run of hardbacks.
