Rommel's Army in Africa

By: A.G. Course (700/35907)
Publisher: ARCO Publications
(From the John Laffin Library)

Many nautical terms and words have found their way into our every-day vocabulary, but their derivation and exact meaning are unknown to many who use them. They will be found in this dictionary, together with hitherto unexplained terms, including nautical slang which the author heard in sailing ships fifty years ago, and which has now passed into common usage.

This book will prove a fascinating mine of information to seafarer and landlubber alike. It has been written for the layman by a seaman; it is also a book which the expert cannot afford to be without.

The lucid descriptions and wide scope of this dictionary have made it a volume into which readers will dip for entertainment as well as for precise and helpful information. It is a unique addition to nautical literature.
