She entered service two months before the start of World War I, was scrapped six years after World War II ended, and was the longest lasting of all four funnelled liners. For two wars, she spent much time transporting troops but for the rest of her career she traveled the North Atlantic as one of the most famous liners afloat. Holding many records, Aquitania was built for the Cunard Line, not for speed but for luxury, at which she excelled, being called the Ship Magnificent from her entry into service. Mark Chirnside writes with a passion about this most beautiful of ships, a ship that was the epitome of the four-funnelled liner.
