This fascinating book provides a unique record of the careers and final underwater resting places of ships of the Cunard Line, whose rich history spans over 300 ships and nearly two centuries. Many books have been published on Cunard's heritage but the final fate of these ships is often little more than a footnote of history. Authors Sam Warwick and Mike Roussel have taken the shipwrecks as a starting point to create a vivid new history. Featured vessels include the well-known Caronia, Lancastria, Campania, Lusitania, Malta, Oregon, Scotia and Carpathia, famous for rescuing the survivors from the Titanic, as well as many others. Events surrounding the wrecking of each vessel are thoroughly explored and unique diver accounts are incorporated, along with never-before-seen underwater images of the wrecks. Finishing off with practical data for interested divers, this book offers a fresh analysis of Cunard's maritime history.

SAM WARWICK has a strong maritime - and Cunard - family background: his grandfather, Commodore W.E. Warwick, was first master of QE2, and his father, Commodore R.W. Warwick, a master of QE2 and first master of QM2. Consequently Sam has spent his life aboard Cunard vessels and developed a love for the sea, which he has translated into wreck diving all over the world, logging over 1,000 dives. MIKE ROUSSEL was a professional musician before entering the world of education and is now a passionate maritime author. Together they have also co-authored Shipwrecks of the P&O Line and The Union-Castle Line: Sailing Like Clockwork, both published by The History Press.
