9780752497716: The Unseen Britannic: The Ship in Rare Illustrations

The Olympic-class ship as never seen before, with previously unpublished and rare illustrations

The third and final sister of the Olympic-class ships, Britannic is quite often—and unfairly—the lesser known in comparison to Olympic and Titanic. Launched at the start of 1914, she began her career on the cusp of war and was put to good use for Queen and Country. Requisitioned by the military in 1915, that April she became Her Majesty's Hospital Ship Britannic. However, her life was cut tragically short in November 1916, when she was hit by an explosion of unknown origin and sunk shortly after. Thanks to the improvements in safety heralded after the tragedy of her sister, Titanic, 1,036 of 1,066 on board survived. Here Simon Mills brings together previously unseen material and this poignant story to tell a tale of heroism in World War I and an oft-forgotten but key ship to maritime history.

About the Author:

Simon Mills is a long-standing camera technician of the UK film industry. He has researched numerous documentaries on historical and maritime subjects, and is a published author on all three Olympic-class ships. He has also written a number of articles for the well-respected Titanic Commutator.

Review:

"If everyone remembers Titanic, and many who crossed on Olympic have fond memories of her, who gives a thought to Britannic? Well, for one, Simon Mills, the author of this enthralling book, beautifully illustrated with drawings of her interiors as they were intended to be and photographs of her oyster-encrusted remains that lie on the floor of the Aegean Sea." —Washington Times

Descrizione libro The History Press Ltd, United Kingdom, 2014. Hardback. Condizione libro: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. As the third and largest sister of the famous Olympic-class trio, Britannic is often and unjustly overlooked in comparison to Olympic and Titanic. Launched on the eve of war in February 1914, Britannic would never see service on the White Star Line s express service on the North Atlantic mail run for which she was built. After being requisitioned by the Admiralty in November 1915 His Majesty s Hospital Ship Britannic instead became indispensible to the thousands of injured and sick troops that needed transporting back to Britain from the Mediterranean theatre of war. However, as was the fate of many liners during the conflict, her life was cut tragically short when she was suddenly wracked by a mysterious explosion on 21 November 1916 and sank in less than an hour - three times faster than her sister ship Titanic, and yet thanks to the improvements in safety heralded by the tragedy of her sister 1,032 of 1,062 on board survived. Here Simon Mills brings together previously unseen material, including stunning colour images of Britannic s wreck in the Aegean Sea, and this poignant story to tell a tale of heroism in the First World War, of an oftoverlooked but key ship to British maritime history and of the unique future that the wreck might still one day enjoy.
