All At Sea

My most recent completed proofreading project for Pen & Sword Books was a splendid volume written by historian Anthony Burton about ‘Ocean Liners’. The story was a potted history of these superb ships, starting in the early nineteenth century and continuing to the present day. The story charted the development of these ships and their use in both peace and war connecting countries around the world, in particular between Britain, Europe and America. Mr Burton’s knowledge of (and deep passion for) the subject in question came through strongly, the result being a very readable history. I am not a maritime expert by any means, but I enjoyed working on this book and learnt a great deal. A useful work which should find a place on many a bookshelf.
