Dieses Buch enthält fünf kurze Geschichten über Seefahrer, ihre Schiffe und abenteuerliche Reisen. Der Autor Jack London selbst führte ein bewegtes Leben. Am 12. Januar 1876 in San Franzisko geboren und in ärmlichen Verhältnissen aufgewachsen, schlägt er sich als Fabrikarbeiter, Austernpirat, Landstreicher und Seemann durch, holt das Abitur nach, beginnt zu studieren, geht dann als Goldsucher nach Alaska, lebt monatelang im Elendsviertel von London, gerät als Korrespondent im russisch-japanischen Krieg in Gefangenschaft und bereist die ganze Welt. Am 22. November 1916 setzt der berühmte Schriftsteller auf seiner Farm in Kalifornien seinem zuletzt von Alkohol, Erfolg und Extravaganz geprägten Leben ein Ende. Hierbei handelt es sich um eine englischsprachige Ausgabe.

Unlike some other reproductions of classic texts (1) We have not used OCR(Optical Character Recognition), as this leads to bad quality books with introduced typos. (2) In books where there are images such as portraits, maps, sketches etc We have endeavoured to keep the quality of these images, so they represent accurately the original artefact. Although occasionally there may be certain imperfections with these old texts, we feel they deserve to be made available for future generations to enjoy.

On December 7, 1941 the Japanese Navy attacked the American Pacific Fleet at Pearl Harbor, Hawai'i. They believed, and the perception remains, that they succeeded in severely crippling the Navy. "Daughters of Infamy" destroys that myth and shows that the vast majority of warships in the harbor suffered no damage at all. One battleship that was sunk was raised and was present in Tokyo Bay in 1945 to watch the Japanese surrender. This is the true story of the ships that survived Pearl Harbor and how they met the enemy and helped to win the war in the Pacific. (Dust Jacket)
