“The internal cohesion in the work is provided by sometimes raw and powerful, sometimes ethereal and lonely black and white photographs. They are superb. Collectively, the warriors, seascapes, famous and infamous maritime locations, and the carefully chosen text create a nostalgic mood of awe and respect. This is a wonderful book to peruse, reflect and enjoy it
