Dive England's Greatest Wrecks focuses in detail on twelve of England's most famous wrecks, with a separate chapter dedicated to each. Every chapter will feature the following: Information on the life and history of each ship, its construction and the highlights of its career. A cutaway sketch showing the depths to th highest and deepest parts of each wreck. A specially commissioned painting of each wreck as it lies on the seabed today by renowned marine artist Rob Ward. Illustrations where appropriate using archive material and underwater photgraphs. An Essential Information panel which provides a summary of important details for divers, including depths, currents, visibility, launching, local conditions and the nearest compression facility.
