RMS Queen Elizabeth: The Ultimate Ship

By Clive Harvey. This authoritatively written and lavishly illustrated history tells the story not only of the Queen Elizabeth's wartime exploits and her transatlantic heyday but also of her losing battle against the new jet airliners, her surprisingly successful foray into the cruise market, her sad and disreputable spell as a static attraction in Florida and - just as she seemed at last to be destined for new success - her tragic destruction by fire in Hong Kong harbour. This is a worthy memorial to one of the World's greatest liners.
