It is a curious fact that the greatest liners of all time were those which plied their trade across the North Atlantic and it is to those great ships that this book is dedicated.
The content of the book is quite excellent. The appetite is whetted by the immediate inclusion of ten full page reproductions of posters from a bygone age. Unlike other books of the genre, this one does not zero in on and then concentrate on the Titanic - as though that were the only ship ever to have sailed. Instead we get a complete history of transatlantic passenger liners of which the Titanic was a part.
The photographs are worthy of the research which has undoubtedly gone into the text with plenty of pictures which are both exciting and rare. The overall subject is so thoroughly covered that short biographies of such diverse characters as Cunard and Brunel are also included.
