She entered service two months before the start of World War One and was scrapped six years after World War Two ended and was the longest lasting of all four funnelled liners. For two wars, she spent much time transporting troops but for the rest of her career she travelled the North Atlantic as one of the most famous liners afloat.Holding many records, Aquitania was built for the Cunard Line, not for speed but for luxury, at which she excelled, being called the Ship Magnificent from her entry into service. Mark Chirnside writes with a passion about this most beautiful of ships, a ship that was the epitome of the four-funnelled liner. You can find major reviews in "Ships Monthly", "Shipping Today" and "Yesterday and Sea Breezes". You can also find review in "Mariners Mirror". Author available for book signings and radio/tv interviews.
