Harland and Wolff, the shipbuilder to the world, enjoyed a mighty heyday before crashing into obscurity. This illustrated book chronicles the history of Harland and Wolff from its creation to the present day. This is the fascinating story of arguably the world's greatest and best known shipbuilding company from glory days to collapse, told from the unique perspective of someone who was there at the time. Today the company is no longer involved in shipbuilding, now maintaining a small ship repair operation, but at its peak it employed over 45,000 people. Well-known Harland and Wolff employee and archivist Tom McCluskie sheds light on many little-known facts about the company, delves into the human interest stories, and recounts both the mighty zenith and ignominious end of this great company.

About the Author:

Tom McCluskie, author of Titanic and Her Sisters, grew up in Belfast, within sight and sound of Harland & Wolff. His thirty-eight-year career at the yard saw him rise from mail boy to head of the draughting department, retiring as admin and archive manager. A published author and a governor of the RNLI, he was technical consultant to James Cameron on the movie Titanic and is holder of the MBE for services to RMS Titanic and maritime history. He has previously written No Place for a Boy for The History Press.

Book Description The History Press Ltd, United Kingdom, 2013. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Harland and Wolff, once acknowledged as the greatest and best-known shipbuilding company in the world, for many years enjoyed a mighty eminence before a gradual descent into near obscurity.
