Description: From the Admiral Popov, the circular Russian battleship that wouldn't steer straight, to the HMS Trinidad, a British cruiser that managed to torpedo itself, this copiously illustrated collection of incompetence on the high seas takes a serious if often entertaining look at the misjudgments of captains, fleet commanders, and ship designers from Roman times to the present day. Full of jaw-dropping anecdotes, Great Naval Blunders proves the old adage, "Worse things happen at sea."
