Om boka

Amid the turmoil of the
dying days of the Second World War, a series of ships were sunk
in the Baltic. These terrible disasters add up to be the
greatest loss of life ever recorded at sea, but the stories of these
ships have been lost from view. While everyone recognises the name Titanic,
the names Cap Arcona, Goya, General
von Steuben andThielbek draw little more than blank
stares.





Claes-Goeran Wetterholm
brings the horror of these tragic events to life in this gripping
study, first published in Swedish, as he collates the unknown stories
of four major shipping disasters, the most terrible in history.
Combining archive research with interviews with survivors and the
relatives of those who died, Wetterholm vividly conveys his experiences
of meeting many witnesses to a forgotten and horrifying piece of
history.
