This history of the Liberty ship, a type of merchant ship, describes its design and production during World War II, and its important role in transporting cargo and supplies for the war. Based on oral accounts of those who designed and built it, as well as seamen, the book starts with a discussion of British prototypes, predecessors, related ships, wartime crews, routes and operations, its role in peacetime, and losses. Elphick is a retired Master Mariner who worked as a port and shipping specialist. He is an author and former editor of the World Ship Trust's Review.
