This best-selling author has produced another of his well-informed,
compulsively readable and beautifully illustrated books about liners. This
time, he has chosen the fabulous French ships from the years immediately
after World War II right up to the present day. They range from the Normandie (still afloat in the late 1940s although she never again saw service), the Ile de France and the Liberté to the beautiful
liners of the Messageries Maritimes; and from the Pasteur, with
her mighty funnel, to the Mistral and the other present-day cruise
Illustrated by superbly reproduced photographs, both exterior and interior,
this book is a must for every liner enthusiast's bookshelf.
