Overview

Marking the 75th anniversary since the launch of RMS "Queen Elizabeth," this new, colorful history of the famous liner offers unique behind-the-scene views, aerial shots, and much more

This history follows the RMS "Queen Elizabeth," the second of two liners Cunard built for transatlantic service along with her running mate "Queen Mary." She was launched in September 1938, the largest passenger liner built at the time and for many years after. Entering service as a troopship in World War II, she had a successful career before retiring in 1968 after which she was sold to a Hong Kong businessman with plans to convert her into a floating university. But it was not to be and she was capsized in a mysterious fire in the harbor in 1972, a bizarre end for an elegant liner. Andrew Britton presents a wealth of unpublished photographic material and ephemera, even including the original purchase receipt, to tell the story of this historic liner. This evocative book offers a treat for all ocean liner fans.
