Mark Chirnside is now widely recognised for his thorough, in-depth and highly researched books on the great Atlantic liners. His latest offering is, basically, an illustrated companion to his current book 'The Olympic Class Ships: Olympic, Titanic, Britannic'. Although profusely illustrated and covering the sisters, Titanic is featured, but only in brief with the more concentration on her two sisters and the author does highlight this at the very start of the book. The book in general is a wonderful voyage through the history of the Olympic Class liners, from their birth to end of career. The book features a generous amount of previously unpublished images and with the captions continuing the story, the book not only flows nicely with it's layout, but is a pleasure to read and admire the black & white and colour images.
