Graceful, fast, and luxuriously outfittted, the "Andrea Doria" was one of the most famous ships of the 20th century. On July 26, 1956, three years after its inaugural voyage, the popular Italian liner was assured of an immortal place in maritime history after colliding with another vessel off the New England coast and sinking. Maritime expert William Miller pays tribute to that magnificent ship in this authoritative, profusely illustrated archive. Scores of rare photographs provide views of lounges and staterooms, shots of the ship in port, as well as depictions of its glorious twin, the "Christoforo Colombo, "and other fleetmates.
Maritime expert William H. Miller, Jr., has traveled aboard all manner of vessels, often in the capacity of guest lecturer or journalist. His books feature personal recollections from passengers who sailed on historic ships, and his unique selection of pictures offers fresh perspectives on even the most-well-known vessels.
