The Suez Canal

By S. C. Burchell

New Word City, Inc.
Released: 2016-10-19
Kindle Edition (86 pages)

The Suez Canal
 
Product Description:
Critics said Ferdinand de Lesseps's ambitious scheme to link the waters of the Mediterranean and Red seas - thus cutting 5,800 miles off the India to Europe ocean voyage - was impractical, unwise, and even foolish. The hostile, empty desert of the Isthmus of Suez posed a seemingly insurmountable geographical challenge to the builder's ingenuity and persistence.

During the ten years of its construction, from 1859 to 1869, the Suez Canal was the focus of worldwide attention. Around the globe, people followed its progress and then celebrated its completion. Today, the Suez Canal is an enduring testimony to people's limitless vision.

Product Description:

After two voyages on the Glengarry, the author returns from leave to be told that he is rejoining her as 1st Radio Officer/Purser and, although he objects to the re-promotion, he is compelled to accept it.

On passage to Hong Kong, the Glengarry experiences the violence of a typhoon and, with the Chinese revolution still in progress, the Kuomintang are maintaining a blockade of communist-held Chinese ports. Because of this, the Glengarry proceeds to Japan via the Bashi Channel with a large Red Ensign spread over No.3 hatch. On her homeward passage, an enjoyable Christmas is spent in Colombo.

Review by J. E. Keegan on Amazon UK ”Very glad to find this series, really enjoyed reading all of the set…”

The author’s post war Merchant Navy Series includes:
Outward Bound
Back To Sea
Via Suez
Last Voyage and Beyond

All four books include historical photographs.

Why not buy OUTWARD BOUND or BACK TO SEA too and be eligible for FREE POSTAGE?
