When the Germans sank their surrendered navy in Scapa Flow, top salvage experts were agreed that the work of recovering the ships was a near impossibility.

Engineer Ernest Cox was the one man who defied their prediction. In 1924 he decided to buy the scuttled fleet, gambling his entire personal fortune in the collosal task of raising the German ships.

Pieced together after much research and told in this biography is the astounding story of what is regarded as the greatest achievement in the history of marine salvage.
