The Riddle of the Sands
The Riddle of the Sands tells the story of two young men on a sailing trip to the islands off the Dutch coast who discover a secret German naval base, and an enemy armada preparing to invade England.
With its prescient plotline and patriotic call for the nation to prepare against its foreign foes, The Riddle of the Sands has remained enduringly popular ever since it was first published in 1903.
Also included are detailed maps of the Dutch coastline and evocative black and white photographs of some of the places Carruthers and Davies visit.
