9781852605650: Wartime Disasters at Sea: Every Passenger Ship Loss in World Wars I and II

During the first and second world wars more than 400 passenger ships of many nationalities were lost. A large number were sunk following torpedo strikes while others were hit by surface shellfire, or by aerial bombardment, or were scuttled. This text contains details of deep-sea passenger carrying vessel engaged either in regular commercial service or in temporary auxiliary duties to be lost during these conflicts. Year-by-year chapters from 1914-1918 and 1939-1945 include a summary of the year's naval activities followed by details of each ship involved in an incident. The information for every ship is presented in a standard format - giving names and former names, year built, owner, builder, tonnage, lenth, engine type with descriptions of the incident - providing date, position, the circumstances, cause and number of casualties. The book is enhanced with photographs depicting wessels in wartime and peacetime service as well as a number of views showing incidents or the resulting wreckage. The appendices summarise losses by cause, the worst 25 losses by number of casualties, the largest 25 ships lost, and a summary of passenger ship losses by enemy action during other conflicts including the Spanish Civil War and the Iran-Iraq War.
