Shipwreck disasters are terrible occurrences and a source of fear and fascination for many people. They are often devastating and can kill hundreds of people at a time. Many people have lost their lives over the years at sea. Shipwreck Disasters first explores why ships can become a danger to life, whether that is because of poor design, freak weather or simple human error. Some famous shipwreck disasters are then explored in detail, explaining how, why and when some of the world's biggest and most famous sinkings occurred. Such as the infamous sinking of the Mary Rose at the hands of the French fleet in 1545, through to the fate of the RMS Titanic, which struck an iceberg on a crossing of the Atlantic, right up to the 2008 disaster in the Philippines. The factors that contributed to each of these disasters are examined in detail and make for compelling reading. Part of a series of 6 books, Catastrophe! uses historical reports, eyewitness accounts and expert opinions to explore incredible natural and man-made disasters. Suitable for KS2-3 these are excellent reference books for teachers and students.
