Description

This fascinating book provides a unique history and record of the final underwater resting places of ships of the Cunard Line, whose rich history spans nearly two centuries. Charting the period from 1843-1974, authors Sam Warwick and Mike Roussel include a detailed history of each vessel leading up to the time of its loss, including Ascania, Alaunia, Aurania, Campania, Lusitania, Malta, Oregon, Scotia and Carpathia, famous for rescuing the survivors from the Titanic. Events surrounding the wrecking of each vessel are thoroughly explored and unique accounts are incorporated from divers who have explored the wreck, along with never-before-published underwater images of the wrecks. Finishing off with practical data for interested divers, this unusual history offers a fresh analysis of maritime history.show more
