History of transatlantic travel covering the period from 1816 to 1961 and taking in major events of sail and steamship travel right up to the French Line's big new France. The era of sail is given its usual due. Ship builders, owners and masters are shown as they build bigger and faster ships in the growing competition of the trade. But when the story gets into the era of the big steamships the pace increases and the sense of keen international competition becomes intense. The sinking of the Titanic, the development of the Queens and the loss of the Andrea Doria complete this picture of the conquest of the world's busiest shipping lanes. #0120 (NO DUSTJACKET)
