Shipwrecks of the Egyptian Red Sea.
The Egyptian sector of the Red Sea provides scuba divers with their finest opportunity to explore the most outstanding collection of shipwrecks found anywhere in the world. No other country is able to boast such a fine assortment in a relatively confined area and in constant conditions of warm clear water. Indeed, the wreck of the Thistlegorm has remained the world's most visited dive site for the past fifteen years.
This comprehensively researched and richly illustrated work contains details of nineteen wrecks, twelve of which have never been described or illustrated before in any book. A final Appendix includes miscellaneous shipwrecks, providing a solid research base for anyone wishing to know more of the story behind these epic sites. Each of the main chapters is devoted to a narrative which includes the ship's history, details of her final voyage and diving details - all personally researched by author Ned Middleton.
In accompaniment, Rico Oldfield provides a stunning artistic impression of each site, showing the ship in its entirety.
