Description

1421 The Year China Discovered the World by Gavin Menzies. On 8 March the largest fleet the world had ever seen sailed from its base in China. The ships, huge junks nearly five hundred feet long and built from the finest teak, were under the command of Emperor Zhu Di's loyal eunuch admirals. Their mission was 'to proceed all the way to the end of the earth to collect tribute from the barbarians beyond the sea's and unite the whole world in Confucian harmony. Their journey would last over two years and circle the globe. Gavin Menzies has fifteen plus years tracing the astonishing voyages of the Chinese fleet. Now, in a fascinating historical detective story, he shares the remarkable account of his discoveries and the incontrovertible evidence to support them. A VERY LARGE BOOK THAT WILL REQUIRE ADDITIONAL FREIGHT.
