Arctic labyrinth : the quest for the Northwest Passage

Williams, Glyndwr2010
Books
From the tiny, woefully equipped ships of the first Tudor expeditions to the icebreakers and nuclear submarines of the modern era, Williams describes how every form of ingenuity has been used to break through or try to get round the nightmarish ice barriers set in a maze of sterile islands to find the Northwest Passage.
