On the Back Cover

Despite the passage of sixty years, the White Star Line is still regarded with esteem and affection. It continues to rank among the most significant shipping companies, and the ships that bore its livery continue to be better known than many that have served since those days.

For those born after the end of White Star, this volume is, therefore, deliberately comprehensive and definitive. There is the usual chronological company history. Next, every one of their 98 ships is illustrated by 74 scale profile drawings. The career histories of each are given in fuller detail, and during the days of the International Mercantile Marine Co., the IMMC running mates arc is mentioned.
