In this celebratory book, William Miller’s passion for the romance of ocean liners looks to the Cunard Line and its fleet of iconic ships, including the two ‘Queens’, Mauretania, Caronia and Queen Elizabeth 2. Drawing on staff and passenger interviews, photographs and posters, the author traces the ships’ survival through the Second World War, when many liners were painted grey for military service, into passenger shipping’s grand and opulent finale before the advent of commercial aviation.
