The publication, as it is quite clearly understood from its title, is intended to provide readers including both professionals and enthusiasts of maritime industry, with profusely illustrated story of the ship construction as well as the history of warships and liners throughout more than four centuries.
The author has managed to describe in a single volume, full of the extremely interesting stories, so many individual vessels, starting from the sixteenth-century galleons constructed for exploration or for battles, through the trading liners and lush liners and up to the very latest industrial developments such as the nuclear vessels and aircraft carriers.
The book starts with a chapter taking readers to the so-called age of fighting sail, then we are moving to the steam era and warships, ocean liners, container vessels and cargo ships, voyages of adventure... in short, this is an absolutely recommended title for everyone willing not only to read but also to see with their own eyes...
