Classic Liners Ile De France and Liberte PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Classic Liners Ile De France and Liberte free pdf This beautifully illustrated history portrays two of the French fleet's most glamorous liners in their post-war heyday. Ile de France was a ship with unique style and character, restored and re-launched in 1949 after wartime service as a troopship. Liberte was built as the German Europa in 1930, but was ceded to France in 1946 and restyled in French Line luxury. The ships were famed for their service and on-board ambience, but most of all for being the 'best-fed liners on the Atlantic'. Each ended their days on the silver screen, Ile de France as a prop in The Last Voyage, for which she was partly sunk in 1958, and Liberte in the closing scenes of the classic film Sabrina before being scrapped in 1961. William H. Miller's latest work in the Classic Liners series brings together an unrivalled collection of images, including previously unpublished colour photography, and truly evokes the glamour of two of the most beloved ocean liners of the era.
