The Ship in Rare Illustrations
by Eric Sauder
Sauder is the perfect man to write and compile this superb volume.
After researching ocean liners for nearly 40 years, including exploration of Lusitania, Britannic and Titanic, Eric Sauder is the perfect man to write and compile this superb volume. He draws on many rarely before seen photographs, some of which are from the personal albums of victims and survivors relatives. The history of RMS Lusitania is a fascinating story. Not only was she was the largest ship in the world, but she was also revolutionary in design as well as being a record breaker. Lusitania is now sadly remembered for her tragic destruction, sinking in eighteen minutes with the loss of around 1,200 souls. In this year, the year of the centenary of this terrible tragedy, this book is an exceptional tribute to this famous liner and should not be missed.
