Batavia

$34.95 GST

In the seventeenth century, the world’s prime trade super-power was Holland. They ruthlessly protected and controlled the passage from the East Indies to Europe, trafficking priceless spices back at enormous profit. The flagship, Batavia was the pride of the Dutch East India Company.
The Shipwreck of the Batavia combines in just the one tale the birth of the world’s first corporation, the brutality of colonisation, the battle of good vs evil, the derring-do of sea-faring adventure, mutiny, ship-wreck, love, lust, blood-lust, petty fascist dictatorship, criminality, a reign of terror, murders most foul, sexual slavery, natural nobility, survival, retribution, rescue, first contact with native peoples and so much more.
HB 490 pages
