Details

A terrible gale off the Orkneys smashed HMS Hampshire's lifeboats after the ship had struck a mine in 1916. Lord Kitchener was among the hundreds of lives lost. The unforgiving waters around Scotland provide the scene for over a dozen more tales of maritime catastrophe in this book, including the loss of the Hood in 1941 and the Piper Alpha oil rig disaster of 1988.
