The author of this well researched and attractively produced booklet... ...has gone a long way towards filling any gaps that might have existed regarding the all-too-brief of one of the UK's largest passenger liners. -- Ships Monthly, August 1993
"Britannic" was the sister ship of the "Titanic" - for too long the forgotten member of the White Star trio. Built to support the company's luxury transatlantic passenger service, she was launched in 1915 as war overwhelmed Europe, and she sailed from her builders not in the proud colours of the White Star Line, but in the white uniform of a hospital ship. She was barely a year old when she too was sunk - though, fortunately, not with a ship full of injured, but the mine which exploded under her belly nevertheless killed many of her compliment - a terrible legacy of the "Titanic" jinx.
