The subject is well researched, the breadth of coverage impressive and the text very readable. … It is not only for the enthusiast but also for the uninitiated and indeed the scholar. Included are the great shipping enterprises and the fine ships which provided our passenger services and economic lifeline for so long. The country's maritime infrastructure is well documented - from the small, romantic and almost forgotten ports, to the magnificent harbours of today. The authors also cover our proud naval record and the many facets of our comparatively young merchant marine." - From the Foreword. .
