From Mauretania's Blue Riband-winning Atlantic crossing in 1907, to the launch of QE2 in 1967, the story of the great liners - 'a tale of romance, elegance and spectacular disaster'- is told here in over 350 photographs and Fox's engaging captions and text. The images explore both the glamour and the nuts and bolts of the ships: their opulent salons and staterooms, massive anchors and screws, games on deck, and wartime service as troop ships. Text in English, German and French.
