Description

Mutinies is an exhaustive investigation of twenty-three of the world's most infamous uprisings at sea, from the earliest days of ocean exploration to the present. Investigating the circumstances and motivations that drive seamen to overthrow authority and commit extreme and lethal crimes, Barry Stone uncovers the fascinating stories behind some of maritime history's most treacherous and treasonous acts. From the psychopathic events that unfolded on the Batavia in 1629 with leader Jeronimus Cornelisz systematically torturing and killing survivors when the ship ran aground, to the chilling real-life The Hunt for Red October story the extraordinary revolt aboard the Soviet warship Storozhevoy in 1975, this explosive collection of true stories makes for gripping reading.
