Backorder (temporarily out of stock)


RMS Olympic was created during a period of intense competition between the north Atlantic shipping lines. Sister ship to the ill-fated Titanic and the all-too-briefly successful Britannic, Olympic encompassed all the qualities White Star Line was striving for in size, opulence, and luxury. Moreover, she was the only sister to enjoy a lengthy and distinguished career, including time spent as a troopship in World War I. She served as the White Star flagship from 1911 to 1935, when she was finally scrapped. This illustrated history is packed with stunning postcards, images, and memorabilia from author Patrick Mylon's unrivaled collection. Also featuring passenger lists, advertisements, menus, log abstract cards, promotional brochures, and sailing schedules, this sumptuous book presents the definitive "unseen" history of this grand ocean liner.
