CAMPBELL, A.B., Commander. Great Moments at Sea. Illustrated by Bruce Cornwell. London : Phoenix House Ltd, (1957). First Edition. Pp -128. Illustrated. 8vo, blue cloth, silver lettering to spine. “Nothing gives a bigger thrill than that of the great stories of the sea. Every generation produces its own outstanding epic. In peace or war the drama produces some of the greatest moments of human courage. Commander Campbell brings ten of them to life - some of them stories of almost legendary fair excitement: the Cossack's capture of the Altmark, the sinking of the Graf Spee, and Captain Carlsen's brave fight to save the Flying Enterprise. Some of them are less well known but no less great: the fire in the Sarah Sands which first establishedthe tradition of 'Women and children first', and the sinking of the Otrant o and the gallant attempt by the destroyer Mounsey to save the lives of those on board.`- from the dj. Very good in worn and chipped, price-clipped dustjacket. 15.00
