AUTHOR: Sydney Goodman
Fighting Merchantman (pdf e-book)
Fighting Merchantman (pdf e-book)
  • Description
  • Related
A photographic study of the unsung heroes of British navel conflict at sea during the twentieth century.

The story of the merchant navy at war is a story of battles not only fought against the enemy but also against the implacable sea.

Some were only 15 years of age, other hardened seamen, well beyond the usual age of those expected to fight. The author has provided text to go alongside each picture detailing the history of the vessel, its wartime record and its eventual demise. The book contains over 200 photographs from the Sydney Goodman Collection.
