Brief Introduction:

This year is the 600th anniversary of Zheng He's first voyage to the Western Ocean. This book records the feats of a group of mankind's greatest explorers, who displayed courage in sailing again and again into the world of the unknown on board merchant ships.
They started their voyages on treasure ships from the vast Western Pacific, crossed the mysterious and turbulent Indian Ocean, rounded the Cape of Good Hope and got to the southeast coast of the Atlantic beyond, opening a navigation route linking three oceans.
They thus erected the first monument to mankind's great navigation period, Moreover, these 27,000-odd valiant sailors, seven times steering a cumulative total of 1,456 merchant ships of various types on 42 sea routes, old and new, expanded the millennium-old "Maritime Silk Road" into a vast trading network between Asia and Africa.
