Based on a great deal of original research, this book documents and contextualises the managerial and operational history of DFDS in the contexts of Danish and European political and economic history between the mid-nineteenth century and the present era. It also analyses the design development of DFDS' ships and associated infrastructure during the same time-span and the ways in which DFDS' services were promoted and experienced by users. Richly illustrated with a text of 140,000 words, illustrated with over 800 photographs, many never previously published, it provides a unique insight into the development of a historically important company that continues to thrive in the twenty-first century.
