About

Though we call them luxury liners, they are more accurately described as express liners - splendid, glittering steamships connecting the old world and new across the North Atlantic. Long before jets, these floating superlatives thundered on bruising schedule across the world's most dangerous ocean. Maxtone-Graham documents not only the vessels' engineering and architectural marvels, but also the perilous storms and fogs as well as the lives of the liners' permanent inhabitants; we encounter stewards, sailors, stokers, and the gruff, austere warmth of their masters on the bridge.

Illustrated with monochrome images and maps and end papers.
