Against the Odds, by A McKee

Against the Odds, Battles at Sea, 1591-1949
by Alexander McKee

First edition

Alexander McKee, diver and military historian, is widely known as the man who lead the team of amateur divers (one of whom was John Bevan) in the discovery of the wreck of Henry VII’s flagship, Mary Rose. John’s admiration and respect for ‘Mac’ (as McKee was known by his friends) is reflected in his comprehensive collection of McKee’s books. This is one from John’s private collection.

Against the Odds is a collection of gripping sea battles celebrating the men of many countries who risked all to defy the might of opposing forces, or to attempt the impossible contending with the ruthless elements of sea, wind, tide and gunfire.
