As the largest ship yet built, in 1906, and holder of the Blue Riband transatlantic speed record, the Lusitania was already notable before it was sunk by a U-boat in 1915. Other less grand vessels, such as the small launches in which Captain Bligh and Ernest Shackleton made spectacular voyages, are also included in this collection of stories of the sea, which is illustrated with line drawings, maps and the paintings of Austin Dwyer.
