About This Book

Large, lavish and record-breaking, RMS Mauretania remains one of the most remarkable ships ever built. She was to be the fastest and the most beautiful – with six huge turbines and interiors designed and created by the most fashionable of architects – but she would soon find herself pressed into service in the Great War.


From the ships that inspired her build to her very final journey, Illustrated Mauretania (1907) fills in the gaps in the Mauretania’s established literature. Through fifteen episodes, with over 200 images between them, acclaimed maritime historian David F. Hutchings explores the life and times of ‘The Grand Old Lady of the North Atlantic’.
