In the recently-published World of Ships: Olympic, Titanic & Britannic – the 16th in this fascinating bookazine series brought to you by the publisher of Ships Monthly magazine – you can read all about three of the White Star Line’s most notable passenger ships.
The trio of Olympic, Titanic and Britannic was the White Star Line’s answer to Cunard’s Blue Riband-winning Lusitania and Mauretania. The largest ships in the world at the time, the three had varied careers. Olympic sailed until 1935, before being scrapped, while Titanic and Britannic were both lost, the former by collision with an iceberg, and the latter after striking a German mine.
There’s no denying, however, that these ships were the finest superliners of their time, and this comprehensive, 100-page, A4-format, perfect-bound bookazine is packed with fascinating photographs showcasing these magnificent ships throughout their careers. The publication has been edited by Nick Leach, who is the editor of Ships Monthly, and it can be purchased directly from Kelsey Publishing’s online shop for just £8.99, by clicking here
