With insightful little-known facts and stunning unpublished photographs and memorabilia, the "old reliable" White Star liner Olympic is revealed here as never before
RMS Olympic was created during a period of intense competition between the north Atlantic shipping lines. The lead ship from the White Star Line, sister to the ill-fated Titanic and Britannic, Olympic encompassed all the qualities the line was striving for in size, opulence, and luxury. Moreover, she was the only sister to enjoy a lengthy and distinguished career, including time spent as a troopship in World War I. She served as the White Star flagship from 1911 to 1935, after which she was finally scrapped. This illustrated history is packed with stunning postcards, images, and memorabilia from author Patrick Mylon's unrivaled collection. This sumptuous book presents the definitive "unseen" history of this grand ocean liner.
