In the centenary year of her creation - as Cunard's Queen Victoria makes an historic visit to Liverpool to mark the occasion - let maritime journalist Peter Elson guide you up the gangway to maritime history and embark on one of the first Edwardian ocean palace superliners and the very last transatlantic four stacker.
En route, Aquitania's life voyage took in two World Wars, a proud position as one of the Cunard Line's finest express passenger and mail liners and, in her final guise, as an immigrant carrier for those starting afresh.
Aquitania's record in peace and conflict is unsurpassed and unrepeatable, as shown in this lavishly illustrated book, with many pictures unseen for decades.
