"The Egyptian sector of the Red Sea" provides scuba divers with their finest opportunity to explore the most outstanding collection of shipwrecks found anywhere in the world.
No other country is able to boast such a fine assortment in a relatively confined area and in constant conditions of warm clear water.
The wreck of the Thistlegorm has consistently remained the world's most visited dive site for the past ten years.
This well researched and heavily illustrated work contains details of seventeen wrecks, ten of which have never been described or illustrated before in any book.
A final chapter includes miscellaneous shipwrecks, providing a solid research base for any one wishing to know more of the story behind these epic sites.
Each ship is described in detail and illustrated in its final glory, a narrative of each ship's last journey is provided as well as diving details - personally researched by the author - giving underwater descriptions of each vessel - from one end of the ship to the other.
Finally, the artist's stunning impression of each shipwreck in its entirety concludes each individual ship's chapter.
