Shipwrecks of the Cunard Line

by Sam Warwick and Mike Roussel, foreword by John Chatterton


Shipwrecks of the Cunard Line

A unique history and record of the final underwater resting places of Cunard ships spanning two centuries.

This fascinating book provides a unique history and record of the final underwater resting places of ships of the Cunard Line, whose rich history spans nearly two centuries. Authors Sam Warwick and Mike Roussel include a detailed history of each vessel leading up to the time of its loss, including Ascania, Alaunia, Aurania, Campania, Lusitania, Malta, Oregon, Scotia and Carpathia, famous for rescuing the survivors from the Titanic. Events surrounding the wrecking of each vessel are thoroughly explored and unique accounts are incorporated from divers who have explored the wreck, along with never-before-published underwater images of the wrecks. In addition to 18 diveable wrecks the book includes accounts of 66 other losses such as the Queen Elizabeth and Atlantic Conveyor. Finishing off with practical data for interested divers, this unusual history offers a fresh analysis of maritime history.
