Explore Cunard’s history, from 1839 to the present day
The Cunard Story details the history of this iconic Atlantic passenger line, from the early days of Samuel Cunard’s Britannia, to the worlds largest Ocean Liner, Queen Mary 2.
Follow the history from the early days of the paddle steamer through to Cunard’s efforts in World War I (with Mauretania and Aquitania) as well as World War II (with Queen Mary and Queen Elizabeth).
No history of Cunard would be complete without detailing QE2, the longest serving Ocean Liner of all time, and her role in the Falklands Islands campaign. The story ends with the current Queens, QM2, Queen Victoria and the new Queen Elizabeth.
With an introduction by noted maritime historian Bill Miller this book is a fitting tribute to the greatest Ocean Liners of our time.
