    The oceans cover two thirds of the globe and have shaped human history, stimulating exploration and migration, transport and trade, science and technology. In this epic narrative, one of the world's leading naval historians weaves together eyewitness accounts and documentary evidence to bring alive the agonies, achievements and adventures of seafarers throughout history. Illustrated with paintings, photographs, maps and artefacts, this enthralling book charts the history of navigation from the earliest Polynesians to today's global shipping.
