A thousand years ago stout vikings had not only reached North America in their frail craft but had established themselves in such places as Greenland, Messina and Constantinople, to say nothing of London and Paris. During World War 2 between 5000 and 6000 Danish seamen sailed for the United Nations in 800,000 tons of Danish ships. Of these some 1300 lost their lives - a higher percentage of casualties than the Commandos and one exceeded only by the RAF. Today no country builds better ships than Denmark, few offer their seamen better conditions, fewer do as much for seamen ashore. Indeed Denmark has reason to be proud of her seamen and navigators, her engineers and shipbuilders, her fishermen and all others who have chosen the sea as their career. The purpose of this book is to pay tribute to those Danes whose life is devoted to the sea and its ships, especially to Denmark's first seaman, H. M. King Frederik IX, to who it is, by gracious permission, dedicated. ; 7.5" x 10.25"; 95 pages
