5.0 out of 5 stars liners, 29 July 2014
This review is from: The Unseen Britannic: The Ship in Rare Illustrations (Hardcover)
This is the story of the third of the White Star liners built before WW1- the others being the Olympic and Titantic - however the Britannic never became a transatlantic liner as she was commandered by the Admiralty to serve as a hospital ship.She was sunk by mine or torpedo in December 1915.
The book details the building of the Britannic with extensive plans,its maiden and last voyages and the rescue of the vast majority of its crew.
Very well written and researched with an excellent photographic history which is rarely seen.
Highly recommended.

Simon Mills, as the owner of Britannic's wreck, is one of the world's foremost experts on the last of the Olympic Class liners. This book has an excellent text that also puts to bed the myth that Britannic was originally named Gigantic and then changed after Titanic sank.
The "unseen" part of the title is........complicated. There are very few photos of Britannic and the ones presented here have been seen before. There is a section of color wreck photos, however, to make up for this.

A recommended read.

Very Good and well documented . A must have.
Of course , one might just have liked to see the ship as she'd have come out , hadn't it been for the Great War ...
Yet a must have!

Hard to write a review on a book when you know the author - but, it's nice that another book has come forth on this largely forgotten ship - there isn't a lot of photographs on this ship - as WW1 largely overshadowed her arrival and sinking - a book well worth getting the rare shots of this ship.
