There are few names more redolent of the great days of transatlantic sailing than the trio of Cunard liners the Queen Mary, the Queen Elizabeth and the Queen Elizabeth 2. The first two, dating from the 1930s, represented the epitome of gracious traveling during the prewar years and in the immediate postwar period, whilst the QE2 represented a later generation, being constructed in the late 1960s. Whilst the first two have long since been withdrawn, although the Queen Mary still survives in California, the QE2 has recently been joined by a new Cunard vessel -- the Queen Mary 2 -- that is one of the largest passenger vessels afloat and even this is soon to be eclipsed by the construction of a further new vessel -- the Queen Victoria -- that is scheduled to enter service in 2005. Illustrated with both color and mono illustrations, the book explores the rich history of the liners in both peace and war, providing the reader with a fascinating account of these classic liners.
