Fine condition. In two World Wars nearly 200 railway-owned ships were converted to operate as troop carriers, hospital ships, minesweepers and seaplane-carriers, while others carried on normal sailings in a world suddenly more dangerous than before. Railway ships took part in many battle, one in three of them failed to return. This book tells their story. Large format. Glazed pictorial boards. B/w photos. 127 pages.
