Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

A fascinating history of the great ocean liners from the first crossing of the Atlantic by an auxiliary steam-powered vessel in 1819 to the massive cruiseliners of today. Excellent color and b&w photographs depict the glory and the tragedy of ocean travel throughout the world during times of war and peace. 11x10".
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

The attention currently being paid to the Titanic — including a new movie, numerous articles, and a new museum exhibit — is fueling readers' interest in ocean liners. The Liners will more than satisfy their curiosity as it presents one of the richest collections of data, anecdotes, and updates about the world's most famous ocean liners and their fates. Legendary names such as the Titanic, Queen Mary, Andrea Doria, and QE2 are covered here. Their makeup, cruise routes and histories are presented in detail that's enhanced by recollections of designers, crew members, passengers, and, in the case of several sinkings, eye witnesses. Archival photography, much of it previously unpublished, makes this a captivating book.
