About This Book

This beautiful, full colour book presents a review of passenger ships across the twentieth century, from the 1920s, and the 1940s, through the heyday of the 1950s and '60s, and up to the onset of the jet age. The fleet includes varied representatives: the great Cunarders, the United States, France & Michelangelo from the North Atlantic, but many others as well – ships such as the Southern Cross, Windsor Castle, Canberra & Oriana. Other, smaller liners also appear, ships such as the Aureol, Batory, Guglielmo Marconi, Hanseatic, Queen of Bermuda & Willem Ruys, complete with notes, historic facts and anecdotes, about these ships, all borken up by decade. These ships return to the high seas once again in this superb, colour-filled book.
