Hello and welcome to my web site! Here you will find a listing of my books, a synopsis of each, and reviews which should aid you in selecting which you will want to read first! Also you will notice there are direct links to the sites where you can actually part with some of your hard-earned money to buy any or all of them! You can also learn more than you probably want to know about me, but there it is!
Have a look about and enjoy! Should you feel moved to, let me know what you think of the site, the books, or maritime history. Just click “Contact Bill White,” right below that handsome chap there on the left! Thanks for stopping by. MORE
