Summary Although the Merchant Navy suffered a higher percentage loss than any of the Armed Forces in the Second World War, few people today are aware of this or have even heard of them. Thirty-three thousand merchant seamen died, while others were severely injured both physically and mentally. This book is an attempt to dispel the ignorance and brings together a wealth of information concerning ship losses, including ships' names, captains, route lost on, coordinates when lost, date, time and loss of life. A former wartime Merchant Navy man himself, Malcolm presents a compendium of shipping company losses that is staggering in scale. This work would be a valuable addition to any Second World War or shipping enthusiast's collection.
