During the time the White Star Line existed, Britain was involved in both the Boer Wars and the First World War. The White Star vessels contributed greatly to the British war effort in each conflict. They didn't always make it out intact, HMHS Britannic being one example of a beautiful liner to be lost after hitting a mine. After the merger of White Star with Cunard in 1934, several of the company's vessels went on to serve in World War Two. Expert author and collector Patrick Mylon has compiled the first book to concentrate on wat happened to the White Star ships in wartime, weaving together ship histories and moving human stories to create a poignant and evocative book filled with rare imagery. AUTHOR: Patrick Mylon spent his working life in the travel industry. He began what would become a lifetime's hobby collecting White Star memorabilia in 1983 and now has a collection of over 4,000 items. He is a member of various Titanic and White Star Line societies and lives in London. He has previously written The White Star Collection, The Unseen Olympic, and RMS Titanic: The Wider Story for The History Press.
