5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Refrence, 5 Sep 2012
I eventually ended up purchasing this book elsewhere because Amazon failed to deliver an undamaged copy. I ended up with three books because I had to have a copy. Although the text is fairly limited the pictures more than make up the difference but then this is the purpose of the book.

I recommend "RMS Olympic, Titanic's Sister" by Mark Chirnside as essential reading for anyone… Read more

Olympic & Titanic: The Truth Behind the Conspiracy by Bruce Beveridge
I have wanted to build a model of the Olympic and get it right but have been hampered by the seeming lack of detailed information. The Titanic has overshadowed her two sisters, even more so now that the hundredth anniversary of the sinking has just passed. Nothing like a conspiracy to have all the information needed in one place and links to more information. There is more about the Olympic out there in terms of photographs and plans which causes no end of debate amongst Titanic modellers, myself included. I have other books by these authors and some are very detailed but they are Titanic orientated and as a result the success of the Olympic is over shadowed. This book debunks the Olympic… Read more
