This is an auction for KHUBILAI KHAN'S LOST FLEET: HISTORY'S GREATEST NAVAL DISASTER, by James Delgado.

"Dredging not only the sea but also historical records, Delgado tells us something new - some of it speculative but most of it richly authentic - about a great nautical adventure."
- The Times

"Engaging and highly readable."
- Guardian (UK)

"One finishes the book ready to strap on mask and tanks to dive for the buried remains of the shops that still hold more Mongol secrets."
- Times Literary Supplement

Amazon.com review:

"After finally achieving what had eluded even his grandfather Genghis Khan - the conquest of China - and inheriting the world's largest navy, Khubilai Khan set his sights on Japan. He commanded an immense armada, the largest fleet the world had ever seen and his success seemed assured. The Japanese were vastly outnumbered and facing certain death, but they prayed to their gods for survival and the very next day Khan's entire armada was destroyed by a 'divine wind', the kamikaze. The legend of the kamikaze has endured for centuries, and was revived as a Japanese national legend during the Second World War, culminating in the suicide bombers sent to attack the Allies, but the truth has remained a mystery. After decades of research and underwater excavation marine archaeologist James Delgado reveals what really happened to Khubilai Khan's fleet."
