The Evolution of the Transatlantic Liner follows the changing form of the transatlantic ocean liner from its inception in the nineteenth century through to the present day. This book traces the major evolutions in passenger ship design and how it was influenced by changing needs and beliefs, while at the same time showcasing how these enormous ocean craft helped shape societies on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean. In a book packed with rare photography, the authors look at the way a changing world, politics and technology led to the construction of ever larger, faster and grander ocean liners. Covering great liners such as Great Western, Great Britain, Britannia, Etruria, Kaiser Wilhelm der Grosse, Oceanic, Lusitania, Mauretania, Olympic, Titanic, Bremen, Normandie, Queen Elizabeth, United States and many more, this book is a valuable addition to your historical maritime library. Includes 100 black & white, and 80 full color illustrations.
