Narrow Sea: Barrier, Bridge and Gateway to the World -- the History of the English Channel
Peter Unwin (au)
The English Channel’s powerful winds, tides & currents have complicated navigation, dictated naval strategy & frustrated invaders, fishermen & cross-Channel swimmers alike. For thousands of years ships have traveled back & forth, bearing people as diverse as William the Conqueror, Francis Drake & George Snelling, ‘the great smuggler of Broadstairs’. Leaders such as Julius Caesar, Napoleon & Hitler have battled for sovereignty over the narrow seas, while galleons, ships, submarines & Spitfires have tried to stop them. Here is the story of the English Channel from the land bridge that linked Britain to the continent 9,000 years ago to the Channel Tunnel of the 21st century. Color & b&w illustrations.
