The Dragon's Triangle Author:Charles Berlitz What is it that lurks in the Dragon's Sea? For centuries, natives believed that undersea monsters dwelt there, lying in wait to swallow unwary invaders. What else could account for the utter disappearance of entire fishing boats and their crews? And in such astonishing numbers? And withou a trace? *Some years be... more »fore Charles Berlitz wrote his internationally successful "Bermuda Triangle," he'd begun researching a section of the Pacific know only as the Dragon's Sea. *Berlitz discovered that the disappearances went well beyond fishing boats. His research revealed that lost craft of all sizes had vanished within the Dragon's Triangle. Tankers--one over 200,000 tons; military ships; armed nuclear submarines; research and scientific expeditions, fish processing factories--hundreds of ships sailed into the Triangle and vanished...*Without any trace of shipwreck flotsam, *In calm seas, *Without any distress message, *With few survivors...The numbers are overwhelming. *Bordered on two sides by the great gulfs in the ocean floor and trenches plunging 5 & 8 miles deep, the Triangle waters form three-sided waves, as though the very ocean is signaling a confluence of strong and ineluctable powers.« less
I thought this book was great and Charles Berlitz provides a lot of great factual information on occurrences that happened in the Dragon's Triangle. He covers things such as islands that have been documented and then later disappeared, the ships and planes that have gone missing in this area, and how the Dragon's Triangle is situated on a hot bed of underwater volcanoes and earthquake zones. There are also some great pictures in this book and if you like Charles Berlitz and/or topics such as the Bermuda Triangle then you will more than likely enjoy reading this book.
