Description: Author's interest has ranged across all areas of shipping, he has always had a particular fascination with the cargo liners that plied the seven seas on a regular basis, transporting all manner of goods and raw materials between nations and, in so doing, providing a vital link in the world trade chain. Characterised by a forest of masts and posts and often faster than many passenger liners, they had a grace and beauty all their own.
Many of the well-known companies that operated cargo liners are fast becoming memories but we should be thankful that almost all have been written about in one form or another, either in official company histories or illustrated fleet lists. A number of excellent larger versions of the latter have been published recently, notably in the United Kingdom, Germany, Holland and Denmark. A few more books have dealt with specific subjects relating to cargo ships but, as far as author is aware, no book has tackled the development of the cargo liner "per se", a somewhat surprising omission when one considers the number of books produced on other types of ships.
