58 degrees north : the mysterious sinking of the Arctic Rose

Hugo Kugiya

2005    265 Pages    (New York : Bloomsbury ; [United States] : Holtzbrinck Publishers)

Call #: G 530 A66 K85 2005   

"In the spring of 2001, an industrial fishing trawler went down in the icy, forbidding waters just below the Arctic Circle. The Arctic Rose sunk so abruptly, in the middle of the night, that there was no time for the crew to put on survival suits or call for help. All fifteen men aboard were killed. To the baffled authorities, the cause of the sinking was a mystery. There were no witnesses, no clues, and the nearest vessel reported calm seas that night. The only thing known was the Arctic Rose's [...]

"In the spring of 2001, an industrial fishing trawler went down in the icy, forbidding waters just below the Arctic Circle. The Arctic Rose sunk so abruptly, in the middle of the night, that there was no time for the crew to put on survival suits or call for help. All fifteen men aboard were killed. To the baffled authorities, the cause of the sinking was a mystery. There were no witnesses, no clues, and the nearest vessel reported calm seas that night. The only thing known was the Arctic Rose's last position: 58 degrees north."
"Journalist Hugo Kugiya's investigation of this unprecedented disaster reveals how the modern fishing industry gave rise to these sailors' dangerous and strangely archaic life. Drawing upon interviews with family members and the crew's personal correspondence, Kugiya recreates the stories of the fifteen young men, of wildely different backgrounds, trapped in close quarters and able to call home or mail letters only in their occasional returns to port."
"While delving ever deeper into the lives of the crew, Kugiya also follows the Coast Guard's continuing inquiry, the most costly in history, as experts in weather, naval architecture, and wave formation, as well as salvage crews and rescue workers, all testify in an attempt to determine what really sank the Arctic Rose."--Jacket.

73 North : the battle of the Barents Sea

Call #: D 772 B3 P68 1958   

On New Year's Eve, 1942, four British destroyers fought off a massive German attack in the Arctic by the pocket battleship "Lustzow", the heavy cruiser "Hipper" and six destroyers. Not one merchant ship was lost, and Hitler's fury at this failure almost spelled the end of the German surface fleet. Churchill later wrote that the action ended the German dream of another High Seas Fleet.

On New Year's Eve, 1942, four British destroyers fought off a massive German attack in the Arctic by the pocket battleship "Lustzow", the heavy cruiser "Hipper" and six destroyers. Not one merchant ship was lost, and Hitler's fury at this failure almost spelled the end of the German surface fleet. Churchill later wrote that the action ended the German dream of another High Seas Fleet. This account of this heroic action, in which Captain Sherbrooke of HMS "Onslow" won the Victoria Cross, is more than just a description of a battle; it is also an examination of two mighty navies and the psychology, training and discipline of the commanders and their men. It shows that sheer power is not always a match for ingenuity and brazen courage. [less]

1421 : the year China discovered the world

As detailed in The Economist and recent headline news, Gavin Menzies (author of 1421: The Year China Discovered The World) has recently uncovered a copy of an 18th century map which definitively records the exploits of a Chinese explorer whose fleets roamed the oceans between 1405 and 1435. The map shows America, South America and other parts of the globe that were supposed to have been discovered decades later by Christopher Columbus.

As detailed in The Economist and recent headline news, Gavin Menzies (author of 1421: The Year China Discovered The World) has recently uncovered a copy of an 18th century map which definitively records the exploits of a Chinese explorer whose fleets roamed the oceans between 1405 and 1435. The map shows America, South America and other parts of the globe that were supposed to have been discovered decades later by Christopher Columbus. It is the final piece of evidence to underpin Gavin's theory put forward in 1421: The Year China Discovered The World.

In 1421, the largest fleet the world had ever seen sailed from its base in China. The ships, huge junks nearly 500 feet long and built from the finest teak, were under the command of Emperor Zhu Di’s loyal eunuch admirals. Their mission was to proceed all the way to the end of the earth to collect tribute from the barbarians beyond the seas and unite the whole world in Confucian harmony. Their journey would last over two years and circle the globe.

When they returned, Zhu Di had lost power and China was beginning its long, self-imposed isolation from the world. The great ships rotted and the records of their journeys were destroyed. Lost was the knowledge that Chinese ships had reached America 70 years before Columbus and circumnavigated the globe a century before Magellan. They had also discovered Antarctica, reached Australia 350 years before Cook, and solved the problem of longitude 300 years before the Europeans.

In this fascinating historical detective story, Gavin Menzies shares the remarkable account of his discoveries and the incontrovertible evidence supporting them. [less]
