Between the introduction of the marine turbine and the post-war challenges of air travel and revolutionary cargo-handling procedures, the period covered by this book witnesses a culmination in the development of the merchant ship. The great transatlantic liners, the fast packets and simple tramp steamers, for example, achieved a form of perfection that many regard as classic. These and many other types are described and analyzed in detail in this book.
