France/Norway

Author(s): John Maxtone-Graham

Nautical

The dean of ocean-liner historians brings to life one of the last transatlantic liners: the legendary France, later renamed Norway. The beloved French Line vessel France was beautifully adapted for another and contrasting life after twelve years, offering exemplary service to a new breed of cruising passenger. Destined to be the definitive work on this vessel, this book documents the naval architecture, engineering choices, construction, launch and fitting out of the France, then her lay-up and conversion to the Norway as well as the day-to-day particulars of life on board. Norway would prove enormously successful, sailing for 23 years—twice as long as her career as France.
