Be sure to buy this book! The pictures are well scanned and there are footnotes to tell you about the history of Cunard Line. The book also mentions about the Queens of the Atlantic, the Mary, Elizabeth and QE2. The layout is nice and the organization of information is discreet and orderly. It's quite a good read!

Format: Paperback
As a source of both information and rare photographs, few books can equal Picture History of the Cunard Line. This book includes many little known facts about some of the most famous ships in maritime history. Yet,while it recalls the careers of the better known Cunarders,it also addresses many of the Companies less remembered ships. The great Aquitania who's lengthy term of service included duties throughout both World Wars is finally given the attention it deserves. Virtually all of the companies intermediate steamers are reviewed as well. Because this book encompasses so many of Cunards' ships; and because it presents over 180 of the best photographs ever published on this subject, it should be a treasured addition to any collection. I highly recommend it to all readers particularly those with just a general interest in the subject.

Bought 2 books of this type for a gift. Good general histories of the old Cunard liners. Pictures are in black & white but with enough descriptions for you to mentally add the color, with your own depth of shade, of course.

You aren't an ocean liner buff if you don't have this book! It is REQUIRED. You also ought to have every other book written by Miller and Braynard - the books they've worked on together and apart are beyond words. I have close to all in my private collection. Do yourself a favor and get them all - today! You won't regret it.
