A definitive history of the long lasting rivalry between shipowners and whole nations for the honour of offering the fastest Atlantic crossing. From earliest records to USS United States.
Every ship, its specifications, history, builders owners etc. is described, as well as the intensity (and cost) of the competition. A very satisfying read for any maritime fan.
