Summary
Publisher Annotation: This is the saga of the great Swedish warship, the Vasa. Built to be the crown jewel of the Swedish Navy, the Vasa capsized not a mile into her maiden voyage in 1628―a tragedy resulting in many deaths and great loss. But who was to blame? Award-winning author Russell Freedman explores the history of this ship, and her resurrection from the seas in 1961. William Low’s gorgeous illustrations bring this story to life
Summary
Describes the building of the mighty Swedish warship the Vasa, how it sank not even a mile out of the harbor, the subsequent investigation, and how it was brought to the surface and restored more than three hundred years later
