The Gulf of Mexico- A Maritime History (John Sledge)

info

Anyone read this? came out in 2019, great book. Sledge's Dad wrote With the Old Breed (that the show The Pacific on HBO was based on) and China Marine.

Sledge provides a nice history of the gulf of mexico, how it was founded and everything that makes up its history and culture.

It would be a good fit for most around this site.

Wasn’t the Gulf more discovered than founded? Just to pick nits.
