Volume 3 in the series covers the years 1924-1935 and includes theintroduction of the well-known superliners Normandie and Queen Mary, both of which successfully competed for the prestigious Blue Riband award for the fastest transatlantic crossing. In the lull between the two World Wars many large and famous vessels were introduced, and the period covered by thisvolume saw the emergence of the Brennen, Europa, Ile de France and L'Atlan tique, to name but a few. As with the previous volumes a brief history highlighting the career of each vessel is given, together with detailed specifications and supporting photographs.” - from the dj.
