    There are a couple must-have books for sailors errr, actually, there are loads of great books out there for sailors. I'd be happy to tell you all the great books we have but the best 'must-have' books are the one's that I've written. Check the following two books out as I'm positive they'll be helpful, practical and easy-to-read and digest. I wrote them for myself so everything is totally.   Readers can hope a similar volume gets published for at least the frigates of the Marine nationale, and possibly those of the United States Navy. For those interested in warships of the sailing era, The Sailing Frigate: A History in Ship Models is a book worth acquiring. It offers an outstanding introduction to the history of that era’s most.
