La Belle, the Ship That Changed History

Editorial Reviews


“A remarkable job assembling a concise, but substantive compendium that is comprehensive in scope and easily readable. ‘Extraordinary’ seems to be the word best defining the theme of the book. Will inform, delight and – in many instances – captivate anyone interested in history, archaeology, archaeological conservation and, yes, even engineering.” — International Journal of Maritime HistoryInternational Journal of Maritime History Published On: 2016-03-20
