9781860643736: Monarchs of the Sea: The Great Ocean Liners

The mythology surrounding the Titanic overshadows the fact that the ship heralded a new age of transportation that forged the modern travel industry. The decades that followed the saga of the Titanic are laden with the names of even greater liners--the Ile du France, the Normandie, Queen Mary, the Queen Elizabeth, the S.S. United States and many others. This stunning book presents their fascinating history in words and beautiful photos.

Review:

This beautiful book documents the history of the great ocean liners, from accounts of early ocean-crossing vessels such as the Mayflower to modern state-of-the-art cruise liners used exclusively for holiday travel. The great ships--including Imperator, Île de France, Normandie, Queen Mary, and Queen Elizabeth--are portrayed as ambassadors for their countries of origin, with each ship epitomizing the designs and fashions of its age as it competes in terms of elegance, luxury, technology, and speed. Monarchs of the Sea is well documented and full of interesting facts, figures, and personal accounts. Wonderful photographs, plans, and cutaways have been included. This is a book that anyone with an interest in maritime history should have.

About the Author:

Kurt Ulrich has specialized in travel writing and photography for more than 25 years. He has taken 180 voyages, on every sea. He lives in Zurich, Switzerland.

Book Description I.B.Tauris Co Ltd., United Kingdom, 1999. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. This text surveys the history of the ocean liners. Each great ship, from the Titanic to the QE2 , epitomized the designs and fashions of its age while at the same time representing the national aspirations of its flag nation.
