Reviews

"Hidden Warships introduces readers to a tantalizing selection of sunken vessels, including many recent discoveries. The author relies heavily on both well- and lesser-known publications such as the "gray literature" reports of governmental agencies and websites. The book will be of value to those who have an interest in World War II ships and shipwrecks, and wreckdiving and enjoy the excitement to be found in these discoveries." - Naval History Magazine "Hidden Warships is another fine book by Nicholas Veronico. Like his Hidden Warbirds and Hidden Warbirds II he shows readers what is often hidden in plain sight -- this time spanning the globe where ships are on the bottom (explored by submersibles), wrecked or on exhibit. Veronico is no gratuitous author. He writes with a wonderfully clear though lively style about the histories, the crews and of discovery and restoration where applicable." - Seattle Post Intelligencer "Travel for Aircraft" Blog "Nicholas A. Veronico has chronicled the naval legacy of World War II through surviving ships afloat and in museums, and an amazing tour of some of those resting in the great museum of the deep at the bottom of the sea. You can literally dive into history with this book." - Dr. James P. Delgado, author of Lost Warships: An Archaeological Tour of War at Sea and Ghost Fleet: The Sunken Ships of Bikini Atoll "Sunken ships from World War II hold a fascination for divers, and this well-illustrated book gives the non-diver an appreciation of them." - Seapower "The book is a perfect guide book of sorts . . . use it as guide to visit these historic sites or simply enjoy the compelling stories, above the surface and underwater..." - Examiner.com "Hidden Warships: Finding World War II's Abandoned, Sunk, and Preserved Warships is well written and fun to read and will appeal to wreck divers and anyone that is interested in naval history. You do not need to get wet to enjoy this book, just love history. It is the perfect book to read this fall while planning that big trip for next year to go do some serious wreck diving!" - Wreck Diving Magazine "As good as Veronico's stories about the history, recovery, and disposition of warships like U-505 are, the most valuable parts of the book for the many readers like me who like to visit warship museums might be the many lists of preserved World War II ships, ship websites and ships' data, as well as various indexes to pages in the book, such as warships by country of origin, museums and memorials, and non-combatants." - Journal of America's Military Past "Sunken ships from World War II hold a fascination for divers, and this well-illustrated book gives the non-diver an appreciation of them." - "Seapower" "As good as Veronico's stories about the history, recovery, and disposition of warships like U-505 are, the most valuable parts of the book for the many readers like me who like to visit warship museums might be the many lists of preserved World War II ships, ship websites and ships' data, as well as various indexes to pages in the book, such as warships by country of origin, museums and memorials, and non-combatants." - "Journal of America's Military Past" "Hidden Warships introduces readers to a tantalizing selection of sunken vessels, including many recent discoveries.
