Description :

Language: English Brand New Book. As the twentieth century got underway, the competition between the three greatest passenger lines in the history of the North Atlantic produced three trios of wonder ships. From the Cunard Line came the Lusitania, Mauretania and Aquitania. From the White Star Line came the Olympic, the infamous Titanic, and the Britannic. From the Hamburg-Amerika Line came the Imperator, Vaterland and Bismarck, which would later find service as Cunard s Berengaria, the U.S. Line s Leviathan, and White Star s Majestic. They were, in turn, the fastest, most powerful, largest and most luxurious ocean liners that had ever sailed that ocean. Some would find great success; others would suffer disaster. Their careers would be affected by natural elements, by mismanagement, and by the brutalities of war. Their fates were also inextricably intertwined. The Edwardian Superliners tells their story.

Synopsis : As the twentieth century got underway, the competition between the three greatest passenger lines in the history of the North Atlantic produced three trios of wonder ships. From the Cunard Line came the Lusitania, Mauretania and Aquitania. From the White Star Line came the Olympic, the infamous Titanic, and the Britannic. From the Hamburg-Amerika Line came the Imperator, Vaterland and Bismarck, which would later find service as Cunard's Berengaria, the U.S. Line's Leviathan, and White Star's Majestic. They were, in turn, the fastest, most powerful, largest and most luxurious ocean liners that had ever sailed that ocean. Some would find great success; others would suffer disaster. Their careers would be affected by natural elements, by mismanagement, and by the brutalities of war. Their fates were also inextricably intertwined. The Edwardian Superliners tells their story.

From the Author: The new Second Edition of this book, printed in the spring of 2013, is still in hardcover; however, the printing and binding issues experienced with the First Edition copies have been rectified. The book stands as, perhaps, my personal favorite among those I have authored. Absolutely packed with rare photos and illustrations, it contains detailed information on the careers of nine of the finest, or most famous, ocean liners ever to sail the North Atlantic.

The Edwardian Superliners: A Trio of Trios was nominated for the 2013 Mountbatten Maritime Award by the Maritime Foundation in Great Britain.
