    Determined to restore its pre-eminence in the trans-Atlantic shipping business, the White Star Line decided not to challenge Cunard's Mauretania and Lusitania for speed but to outdo them for luxury and elegance. This book details how its new liner Titanic was conceived, designed and built (at the Harland and Wolff shipyard in Belfast), and contains a number of blueprints and cutaway illustrations as well as archive photographs of the ship under construction.
