In 1519, Ferdinand Magellan sailed with five ships from the Spanish Sanlúcar de Barrameda to the Indonesian Maluku islands in order to buy spices. As the initiator of the first circumnavigation of the world, he provided practical proof of the earth’s spherical shape. On board: Hannes from Aachen, who defies mutinies, shipwrecks, battles, and cannibalism. Rich in detail, full of suspense, and opulent, this book tells the story of the world’s first German circumnavigator, a little-known minor figure in world history.
