"Something entirely new for ship lovers is quite rare today but Merchant Fleets in Profile presents the history of some of the world's most famous (and not so famous) shiping lines in a unique way. Each section will contain a chronology of the main events in the company's history, an index ofthe ships, together with the actual fleet list, also in date order, which includes every vessel above 100 gross tons owned by the line. The fleet list alone is of immense value to maritime historians, as it includes detailedinformation on the ships, including tonnage, dimensions, engines, hull, ac comodation and service, plus a brief history of each vessel. Years of careful and methodical research have enabled Duncan Haws to illustrate with constant-scale drawings (all to 150 feet to the inch) almost all the ships listed - the illustrations themselves being a major feature of the series. The first volume covers ships of the famous P&O Group, and includes the P&O itself with more than 400 ships, the Orient SN (with PSNC chartered ships) andthe Blue Anchor Lines." - from the dj.
