Overview

The "Story" treatment is given to the name that is synonymous with the most famous ocean liners in the world—a must-have addition to any maritime library
 
The history of this iconic Atlantic passenger line is detailed, 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 World War I (Mauretania and Aquitania) as well as World War II (Queen Mary and Queen Elizabeth). No history of Cunard would be complete without detailing QE2, the longest-serving 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.
