About This Book

During the time the White Star Line existed, Britain was involved in both the Boer Wars and the First World War. The White Star vessels contributed greatly to the British war effort in each conflict. They didn't always make it out intact, HMHS Britannic being one example of a beautiful liner to be lost after hitting a mine. After the merger of White Star with Cunard in 1934, several of the company's vessels went on to serve in World War Two. Expert author and collector Patrick Mylon has compiled the first book to concentrate on wat happened to the White Star ships in wartime, weaving together ship histories and moving human stories to create a poignant and evocative book filled with rare imagery.
