Ships and How They Sailed the Seven Seas by Hendrik Willem van Loon



An enthralling subject for a wide market, this story of ships through the history of man, from 5,000 . Essentially, says Van Loon, it must be a history of war for ""Man is a predatory animal. And ships were an essential weapon, whether war was carried on for conquest, or for widening territory, or for expanding trade. To curiosity as an incentive he grants a grudging 5%. And he debunks long centuries of sailing the seven seas of the glamor and poetry that the life on the ocean wave has acquired. It is a pretty gruesome picture he paints, but it rings true, and it makes good reading. There are a few controversial positions taken, which adds to the fun of the book. A book for all ages - and no apologies needed. Liberally illustrated with Van Loon's characteristic - and definitely informative -drawings. Pub Date: Feb. 21st, 1934.
