Scapa Flow has more shipwrecks and wreckage than any other location in Europe and is regarded as one of the top five wreck diving locations in the World.
The story behind the deliberate sinking of an entire navy is told in detail and diving information is provided for each of the remaining ships from the German High Seas Battle Fleet.
Diving on the 'Blockships' is also heavily illustrated with contemporary photographs as well as archival naval photographs and sketches made in 1915. This book gives the most accurate detail on the shipwrecks and their location to date and is regarded as the quintessential definitive guide to Scapa Flow.
