Die berühmtesten Schiffe des 20. Jahrhunderts

Great Mediterranean Passenger Ships

Resumé - t is hard to think of the passenger liners from the golden era of Mediterranean cruising without also conjuring the nostalgic, dream-like vision of azure-blue waters, bright sunshine and swimming pools with clusters of umbrellas and sunbathing passengers.

The great age of Mediterranean passenger liners began in the 1920s when the Italians built their first big ships, such as the Augustus, Saturnia and Conte Grande. In the 1930s, things got really interesting with the creation of the superliners Rex and Conte di Savoia.
In the 1950s and '60s, as Italy built a huge post-war fleet, Greece, Spain, Portugal, Turkey and Israel commissioned their biggest ships yet.

William Miller has written ninety books on passenger ships and is an acknowledged world expert in his field.
Full of colour and the first-hand memories of passengers and crew, this endearing reflection on the majestic world of Mediterranean travel cannot be missed. Quick, the whistles are sounding!

Great Mediterranean Passenger Ships

Great Passenger Ships: 1920-1930

Resumé - Celebrating the majestic passenger liners of the twenties, "Great Passenger Ships 1920-1930" looks at well-loved ships, such as Majestic, Olympic, Berengaria, Viceroy of India and Rawalpindi, alongside lesser known but still fascinating vessels.

The 1920s have become a fabled era for ocean liners, a period of growth and opulence as companies began recovery after the First World War. As the decade went on plans were drawn for great superliners, until the Wall Street Crash changed the world. During the 1920s, the German Imperator became Berengaria for Cunard, Columbus became Homeric for White Star and Bismarck was renamed Majestic for White Star, becoming the line's most popular ship.

Cunard, White Star and P&O had great success while the likes of Orient Line, Union Steamship Company, Union Castle and Furness- Bermuda Line all added their own ships to the mix during these golden days of ocean travel.

Featuring unpublished photographs in a stunning colour section, "Great Passenger Ships 1920-1930" showcases the zenith of ocean travel in the 1920s.
This series follows ships serving all over the world rather than just famed Atlantic liners, with personal anecdotes of the ships and their voyages from passengers and crew alike.

Great Passenger Ships: 1920-1930

Great Passenger Ships 1930-1940

Resumé - The 1930s was perhaps the most glamorous and exciting decade for the great liners, highlighted by ferocious international shipbuilding rivalry: Germany's Bremen and Europa, Italy's Rex and Conte Di Savoia, France's Normandie and Britain's Queen Mary and Queen Elizabeth.

Passengers travelled on some of the most popular liners of all time, such as L'Atlantique, Empress of Britain, Empress of Japan, Queen of Bermuda, President Coolidge, Strathnaver and Strathaird, Orion, Capetown Castle, Oranje, Mauretania, Andes, and many more.

As this book recounts, despite the worldwide Depression and a great shift in trading patterns, it was a wonderful decade for shipbuilding and the era of art deco on the high seas - the age of 'floating Ginger Rogers'.

Great Passenger Ships 1950-1960

Resumé - The 1950s was a fascinating decade for the great liners. After the global devastation of two decades of war and Depression, shipyards were creating one new liner after another, it seemed, to rebuild and renew passenger ship services all over the world. There were the likes of the Kungsholm and Oslofjord from Scandinavia, the French Flandre and a succession of new liners from P&O-Orient, the Italian Line, Messageries Maritimes and many more.

The new hopeful era of the 1950s was highlighted by such brilliant, headline-making ships as the speedy United States, breaking records on an unprecedented scale, the engines-aft Southern Cross and the mastless Orsova. Showcased beautifully by the stunning images and nostalgic outlook of prolific maritime historian William H. Miller, this book shines a well-earned spotlight on some of the world's most popular passenger liners.

Great Passenger Ships 1950-1960

Post-War on the Liners

Resumé - From the end of the Second World War through three decades, to the 1970s, traditional port-to-port, class-divided passenger ship business carried on. This meant all kinds of ships - from big liners to small, often rebuilt, ex-coastal steamers.
Accommodations varied from luxurious suites with bedrooms, sitting rooms and marble baths in upper-deck accommodations to Spartan dormitories with as many as 50 berths and communal facilities. But the purpose was all but the same: to go from A to B.

This book examines, through anecdotes & collected experiences, the many passenger ship services of now a bygone era. It is about the diversity and the contrast. There are of course the Atlantic crossings, but also three & four class ships to South America, combination passenger-cargo types carrying only 100 or so travellers, fast mail ships to South Africa, colonial passenger vessels to Mombasa, crowded migrant sailings to Sydney and Auckland, and trans-suez and trans-Pacific passages.
All sorts of ships appear: big Cunarders like the Queen Mary, Italy's Augustus and Britain's Kenya & Uganda, the Oronsay & Southern Cross and even more remote ships such as the Cap Salinas, Tjinegara, Changsha & Hikawa Maru.
It concludes with the closing down, in 1977, of the Union Castle Line's run between Southampton and the South African Cape, the last regular big liner service in the world.

Post-War on the Liners

Last of the Blue Water Liners : Passenger Ships Sailing the Seven Seas

Resumé - This is the story of the last class-divided passenger ships that carried travellers from point to point. In the final years of activity, spanning from the 1940s to the 1960s, they carried Hollywood stars and even royalty on the Atlantic, businessmen to South America and Africa, migrants to Australia and New Zealand, and visitors returning to European homelands.

"Last of the Blue Water Liners" nods to the Atlantic liners but also revels in the many other passenger ships that plied trades around the world: vessels like the Antilles, Oslofjord, Kampala and Changsha.
Complete with rare images and the insight of the prolific maritime historian William H. Miller, this book is a nostalgic parade of a bygone age, a generation of ships all but swept away in the 1960s and 1970s as jet travel changed the world.

Post-war Canadian Pacific Liners - Empresses of the Atlantic

Resumé - Canadian Pacific was one of the great Atlantic liner companies, sailing out of Liverpool on the St Lawrence route to Montreal and Quebec. With crisp white hulls and their distinctive chequered funnels, they were the 'Empresses of the Atlantic', a great part of the last grand era of the Atlantic liners. Classic, two-class ships, they were also well-known as popular winter cruise ships.

Covering the period from the end of the Second World War until 1971, when the fleet was sold off, the book begins with the renovated Empress of Canada and Empress of France, taking us through the new builds of the 1950s, including the Empress of Britain, Empress of England and the company's swansong, the beautiful Empress of Canada, constructed in 1961.

British, Canadian and American travellers remember the Empresses with fond memories and the ships also continued sailing for other companies, including the fledgling Carnival, now the largest cruise company in the world.
