Another great book from Mark Chirnside. White Star's Celtic, Cedric, Baltic & Adriatic were impressive and highly successful liners. They are often overlooked, however, since they were not "express" liners and operated on the Liverpool-New Your route. This book goes a long way to rectifying that situation. The in-depth text describes the adventures careers of "The Big Four." The Celtic was damaged twice in World War I and was lucky to survive. Adriatic represented the epitome of ocean liner development for White Star when she entered service in 1907. She had many features that would later be installed in Olympic and Titanic. Highly Recommended!
