The Blue Riband is a mythical trophy for the fastest ship on the Atlantic. The battle for this title fascinated the public for almost 200 years and was wholeheartedly embraced by five nations. Record Breakers of the North Atlantic describes the lengths to which these nations went to call the Blue Riband trophy their own. With wonderfully detailed illustrations and text, the author takes you from the early paddle steamers to the last great high speed, four-screw turbine liners, demonstrating just what happens when you combine national rivalries with the remarkable engineering and commercial motivation of the shipping lines involved.
