"Evolution of the Transatlantic Liner" follows the changing form of the transatlantic ocean liner from inception in the nineteenth century to the jet age of the 1960s. This book details the way a changing world, politics and technology led to the construction of ever larger, faster and grander ocean liners. It traces how transatlantic liner design has been influenced by changing needs and beliefs, while at the same time showcases how these great transatlantic liners helped shape societies on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean. Covering great liners such as Great Western, Great Britain, Great Eastern, Britannia, Etruria, Umbria, Kaiser Wilhelm der Grosse, Oceanic, Lusitania, Mauretania, Olympic, Titanic, Bremen, Rex, Normandie, Queen Mary and many more, this book is a valuable addition to your historical maritime library.Biografía del autor:
