As close as you can get to the world's warship wrecks without getting your feet wet

Sunk by enemy fire, scuttled, or run aground, the number of World War II-era battleships, cruisers, submarines, and other warships that ended their service on the bottom of the world's oceans and seas is enormous. In the decades since the conflict, wreck hunters have pored over historical records and combed the world's oceans to find their remains.

In "Hidden Warships," naval historian Nicholas A. Veronico details the history, recovery, and preservation of these sunken combat ships--including accounts from the divers and restorers who have worked with them. Beginning with the Japanese midget submarines that attacked Pearl Harbor and continuing through into the modern era, including the 2006 sinking of the postwar aircraft carrier USS "Oriskany," Veronico provides rich detail on each noteworthy vessel, including over 150 photographs, ship specifications, geographic coordinates, and more. For the enthusiast who wants an even more complete experience, the book concludes with a list of preserved ships, an Internet resource guide, and a suggested reading list to continue the exploration.

Whether you plan on visiting these historic sites yourself or simply enjoy their compelling stories, "Hidden Warships "will guide you, above the surface and underwater, through some of the most famous relics of World War II naval warfare.
