Interesting to have a book that does not entirely focus on the Titanic, Harland & Wolff built three similar ships - The Olympic, Titanic & Britannic - for the White Star Line. This book is detailed with lots of facts & figures and covers the subject very well, is fully illustrated and has a number of pages in by: 1.

The Olympic Class Ships: Olympic, Titanic, Britannic by Mark Chirnside. Titanic is arguably the most famous ship in history, and her popularity has often come at the expense of her siblings. Yet she was but one of a trio of sister ships. The number of titles that have attempted to tell the story of all three liners in one volume is astonishingly short.

The book in general is a wonderful voyage through the history of the Olympic Class liners, from their birth to end of career. The book features a generous amount of previously unpublished images and with the captions continuing the story, the book not only flows nicely with it's layout, but is a pleasure to read and admire the black & white and /5(22).

The research and detail that this book encompasses is outstanding. I also highly recommend Mr. Chirnside's book, "Olympic, Titanic, Britannic: An Illustrated History of the Olympic Class Ships", as it is a perfect visual companion, again not dwelling too much on Titanic but rather bringing Olympic and Britannic into the spotlight/5(9).

Roots of the Olympic-class' design were laid down when Bill George, over a multitude of years as he grew up, became fixated by one of the earliest design concepts that Matt Jefferies created for the original Enterprise, which George saw in the reference book The Making of Star Trek (pp.

); the defining characteristic of this form of the original Star Trek vehicle was that it had a massive Armament: Equipped with limited weaponry.

This is the ultimate resource book on White Star Line's Olympic class ships. As such, it is a thorough research piece that examines the history and technical aspects of the three ocean liners that comprised this class--Olympic (in service ), Titanic (), and Britannic ().As a long-time fan of the great liners, Olympic in particular, I consider this an essential part of my /5.

RMS Olympic was a British ocean liner and the lead ship of the White Star Line's trio of Olympic-class liners.

Sitting around a dining room table inthe owners of the White Star Line discussed their competition to the newly-built Cunard liners, Lusitania and Mauretania. From that smoke-filled room came the first designs of three White Star superliners, Olympic, Titanic, and Britannic.

Each ship was subtly different. Lessons learned from the service of Olympic were put into practice for Titanic. The first company bearing the name White Star Line was founded in Liverpool, England, by John Pilkington and Henry Wilson in It focused on the UK–Australia trade, which increased following the discovery of gold in Australia.

The fleet initially consisted of the chartered sailing ships RMS Tayleur, Blue Jacket, White Star, Red Jacket, Ellen, Ben Nevis, Emma, Mermaid and Iowa.

I think it was just an imaginative guess based on what previous White Star Ships looked like and the fact she would only have 3 (working) funnels. Books about Olympic are far and few between.

Even rarer are books that devote any space to the third of the class, Britannic. Thus it was a welcome addition to literary history when, ina young historian named Mark Chirnside wrote The Olympic-Class Ships: Olympic, Titanic, Britannic. Mark has since updated this book extensively and it was.

‘When The ‘Olympic’ Class Ships was first published, overnight it became the definitive history of the ‘Olympic’ class ships as a group and should still be regarded as such. In addition to the histories of the individual ships, ‘OCS’ relates their history together and treats it well.

RMS Olympic was the lead ship of the Olympic-class ocean liners built for the White Star Line which also included Titanic and Britannic. Unlike her sisters, Olympic served a long and illustrious career ( to ), including service as a troopship during World War I, earning the nickname "Old Reliable.".
