Andrew C. A. Jampoler spent nearly twenty-five years as an active duty naval aviator including a year on the ground in Vietnam, command of a squadron and a naval air station, and service on several high level staffs. He is the author of six other Naval Institute Press books, beginning with Adak in 2003 and most recently Congo.


Andrew C.A. Jampoler is the author of several award-winning books. With Horrible Shipwreck! he presents a comprehensive, yet compelling, story of the tragic sinking of the convict ship Amphitrite. The combination of primary and secondary sources creates a comprehensive body of literature by which to examine this particular account, and places it within a more solid historical framework. the book would appeal to readers of all ages and of a variety of backgrounds. Horrible Shipwreck! provides a good starting point for research and reveals the complex social, cultural and political milieu within and surrounding one ship. Jampoler's work brings to light the importance of context in understanding any event. This book is not only a good read but will also be useful in undergraduate classes on maritime history, legal history and those concerning the nineteenth century. * International Journal of Maritime History *
