The 30s were the time of floating palaces - the passenger super-liners of size, luxury and speed unseen before. That time this was the only way of crossing the Atlantic and reaching the other continents
With the beginning of the WW2 I soon became clear that the use of the passenger liners allows transporting to any part of the globe huge amounts of personnel and equipment at a time. During those years British and French liners made a huge contribution to the victory over Germany transporting from USA to Europe tens of thousands of American and Canadian troops.
The British called upon the usage of passenger ships in 1982 during the Falklands crisis
The second part of the book is dedicated to the participation of the giant ships in the above-mentioned events.
The first part of "Liners of 1936-1968 at War" book goes about the military service of sometime peaceful ships of the beginning of the 20th century. It highlights some unknown facts from the biographies of such liners as "Kronprinz Vielgelm", "Luisitanita", "Britannic", "Olympic", "Vaterland" and some others.
