RMS Mauretania
by Andrew Britton




Overview -

Offering real insight into the life on board during the "Mauretania's" exotic cruises, a colorful, illustrative history of the second RMS "Mauretania"

The RMS "Mauretania," the second, was a smaller version of the luxurious Cunard Queens. She ran the London to New York service from the River Thames and enjoyed enormous popularity from her launch in 1938 to her retirement in 1965, when the great age of the ocean liners waned at last. Spending time as a troopship in World War II, she then returned to the transatlantic route and even embarked upon a world cruise. Andrew Britton presents a wealth of unpublished material from his unparalleled collection to tell the story, including stunning color photographs, wartime views, unique behind-the-scenes photographs, shots taken from the air, interior views, and a wide selection of tickets, menus, log books, timetables, and much more.
