Abstract:

"Henry Kendall went to sea at 15 as a cabin boy. He was the captain of one of the largest Atlantic liners by the age of 32. He survived attempted murder, shipwrecks, torpedoes, icebergs, scorpion bites, cannibals, sharks, fevers, flying bombs and even a marauding leopard. In 1910 Kendall sent a celebrated wireless message from the SS Montrose as he headed out into the Atlantic Ocean: "Have strong suspicions that Crippen, London cellar murderer and accomplice, are among saloon passengers." Inspector Walter Dew of Scotland Yard raced to Liverpool to board a faster ship to Canada. And the world watched... as the power of radio communication was proved for the first time."--Publisher's description.
