The Construction of the Panama Canal

Book - 2000
Rate this:
The construction of this canal was one of the great engineering feats of the early 20th century. In the 1880s the canal project was plagued by the loss of many lives and the bankruptcy of Compagnie Universelle as tropical disease undermined the efforts of the French engineer Ferdinand de Lesseps. Fifteen years later amid much political manoeuvering, the U.S. initialed an ingenious plan that joined the Atlantic to the Pacific while meeting the defense criteria of the U.S. military.
