By the 1970s it looked as if QE2 would be the last of the great transatlantic ocean liners. However, over three decades later the world watched in awe as Queen Mary 2, the largest, longest, grandest and most expensive ocean liner ever to be constructed, set sail on her maiden voyage in 2004. With 14 decks and beautiful lounges, dining rooms and a ballroom, QM2 evokes the glamour of the golden age of ocean travel. QM2: A Photographic Journey allows the reader to experience this unique vessel from the comfort of their own home, with numerous photographs of each of QM2's public rooms as well as stunning exterior shots and behind the scenes access. This revised edition has been extensively updated to reflect the 2016 refit, with many new photographs from around the ship.

A full-color record of the liner including images from her past and present, this is the definitive photographic souvenir of a perennially popular luxury liner. The beauty and elegance of Queen Elizabeth 2 is showcased for the first time in this luxurious paperback edition. It will appeal to a whole new generation of QE2 fans, as the book takes the reader on a journey through the liner's decks with full-color photographs of each public room as they are today and a special behind-the-scenes tour of the bridge, engine room, principal storerooms, crew areas, and other parts of the ship that passengers never saw, and the ship's guests are unlikely to have ever seen. From the unique perspective of two devoted QE2 fans who sailed aboard her during her service life, the book is filled with amusing and interesting anecdotal stories of the ship, her 40-year life at sea, and the various characters who have sailed aboard her.

Queen Victoria was the first in a new breed of Cunard Ships: her design is enhanced to give her the ability to cross the North Atlantic. Introduced to service in 2007, Queen Victoria's reign is young; however, she has had a notable career with royal engagements, tandem Atlantic crossings and Gala-World Cruises where she has been welcomed with open arms. Illustrated with stunning colour photographs taken by the authors from every area of the ship, and fully updated after the extensive 2017 refit, this book provides a lasting memento of a voyage aboard Cunard's stately monarch.

The world's leading producer of oil is on the brink of revolution... A Crown Prince, enraged over the careless, destructive rule of the Saudi royal family, is determined to bring about its fall -- and secretly enlists the aid of a powerful Western ally. France, with its fleet of lethal Hunter Killer submarines, is willing to use whatever deadly force is necessary to shift the power structure of the world's oil giant for a guaranteed share of the wealth. Blind greed and duplicity have forged an unholy alliance -- between France's most able commander . . . and General Ravi Rashood, the Middle East's most virulent terrorist. The terrifying battle for a desert kingdom has begun, as the oil fields explode and the global economy is plunged into chaos. And former Security Advisor to the President, Admiral Arnold Morgan, must lead the offensive to expose the foulest treachery since World War II before America's worst nightmare becomes reality.
