The Cunard-White Star Line's Queen Elizabeth was the largest ship in the World and one of the fastest and most luxurious. In the post-War years, she maintained, with her equally famous running-mate Queen Mary, the most successful transatlantic passenger

An excellent and comprehensive book on what was a magnificent ship. Overshadowed by her older sister, Queen Elizabeth never got the publicity, coverage or numberous books written about her when compared with Queen Mary. I'm delighted we've finally got a book to tell us more, show us more (including some colour plates that really bring the interiors to life), and allow fans of the great ocean liners, such as myself (and you, if you're reading this!) to complete your collection on the levithans of the sea.
If you're reading this and hesitating about whether to buy this book or another: buy it - you won't be disappointed.
It is also a template to the perfect reference book, in my view.
However this book, all though the best out there is not without its flaws as with every other book out there. On page 25 there is reference to the qe1 taking a more familiar shape of construction. This is unfortunately untrue as it is in fact the queen mary???? dont know why the author did that. On page 129 there is another picture allegedly depicting the qe1 after the 65/66 refit with extended superstructure on the stern....except the photograph shown is not the caption depicted as the docking bridge is still present in the photo which was errased in the refit for the lido deck which is what the author was trying to represent in his caption. The picture with the additional superstructur is overleaf from that. Also my only other gripe was that there were not enough pictures of the ships construction and propultion systems. I think this is the only hole in the book to be honest. If you can get over minor blemishes like this then you will love the book.
published in high quality.
