Review:

'Marking the 175th anniversary of the founding of British maritime group P&O, DP World has just unveiled a prestigious and fascinating book telling the P&O story through the eyes of those who travelled with, worked for and managed the company over the years, richly illuminated by works from the official P&O Heritage collection'. --Arabian Gazette

'A treasure trove for those who are fascinated by the shipping of yesteryear.' --Cruise and Ferry Magazine

'The quality of reproduction is superb and this is undoubtedly one of the finest shipping books to appear in recent years and is a well-deserved Ships Monthly Book of the Month.' --Ships Monthly, November 2012
