Dictionary of Passenger Ship Disasters

Encyclopaedic in coverage and comprehensive in detail, this publication records the losses of more than 1,000 passenger-carrying vessels of all types including liners, cruise ships, excursion vessels, ferries, troopships, hospital ships and other wartime auxiliaries. The accounts of the incidents are supported by full technical details for each of the featured ships, plus an appendix listing a further 125 ships which fall outside the main coverage either for reasons of size or because the ships carried only a few passengers. From the dawn of the age of powered navigation up to the present day, this volume provides the most extensive listing and descriptions of passenger ship disasters ever published. 710 b/w photos. H/B 288 pages.
