Cunard is a name synonymous with the most famous oceanliners in the world. The Cunard Story details the history of this iconic Atlantic passenger line, from the early days of Samuel Cunard's Britannia, to the world's largest ocean liner, Queen Mary 2.
Following the company's 170-year history, this brightly illustrated book begins with the early days of the paddle steamer, through to Cunard's efforts in the First World War (Mauretania and Aquitania) as well as the Second World War (Queen Mary and Queen Elizabeth). No history of Cunard would be complete without detailing QE2, the longestserving ocean liner of all time, and her role in the Falklands campaign.
The story ends with the current Queens: QM2, QV and the new QE. Written by two maritime authors, both experts on the field, and accompanied by Did You Know facts and quotations, The Cunard Story is a must-have addition to any maritime library.
