A nonfiction work by the creator of Dirk Pitt, this book tells thirteen tales of searches for shipwrecks. The circumstances…surrounding each are described in detail along with the searches. This book reads like a novel. Among the shipwrecks are the C.S.S. Hunley, a confederate submarine-- the first to sink a ship in battle, The Leopoldville, a troop transport torpedoed by a German U-boat on Christmas eve, 1944 and the discovery of U-20, the German sub that sank the Lusitania in 1915.
A hunter of shipwrecks documents the discovery or survey of twelve major ships in deep waters. Each ship's story begins…with an account of its final voyage, then describes how the ship was found. Featured are the Confederate submarine Hunley and the Allied troop transport Leopoldville, among others. 2003, c1996.
