New York W. W. Norton & Company 2008 0393066533 / 9780393066531 First Edition; First Printing Hardcover Near Fine in Near Fine dust jacket 
Looks new. Dust Jacket now in Mylar Protective Cover. From a review " Excellent overall. Mostert deals mainly with naval conflicts during the Great War, but of course that cannot be done properly without discussing the military campaigns happening on land at the same time, which he does adequately. I bought this book hoping to learn about Admiral Nelson, and Mostert provides a vivid picture of the man which includes excerpts from his correspondence. In fact, the book is full of pieces from writings of the time, including accounts by common seamen. One also gets to know what Napoleon was up to on land at this time, and I learned enough about the Emperor to glimpse his depth and genius as well as his driving mania. If you are fascinated by the "nuts and bolts" of wooden ships, buy this book."; Photographs, Maps; 9.40 X 6.20 X 2.30 inches; 800 pages

17 Watton, Ross The Cunard Liner Queen Mary
US Naval Institute Press 1989 087021599x / 9780870215995 First American Edition; First Impression Hardcover Very Good in Good dust jacket 
Dust has been neatly glued by former owner to prevent loss with very minor yellow spots on front endpaper. A luxury liner turned troop carrier during World War II. RMS Queen Mary is a retired ocean liner that sailed primarily on the North Atlantic Ocean from 1936 to 1967 for the Cunard Line (known as Cunard-White Star Line when the vessel entered service). Built by John Brown & Company in Clydebank, Scotland, Queen Mary, along with RMS Queen Elizabeth,[3] were built as part of Cunard's planned two-ship weekly express service between Southampton, Cherbourg and New York. The two ships were a British response to the express superliners built by German, Italian and French companies in the late 1920s and early 1930s. Queen Mary was the flagship of the Cunard Line from May 1936 until October 1946 when she was replaced in that role by Queen Elizabeth. Queen Mary sailed on her maiden voyage on 27 May 1936 and captured the Blue Riband in August of that year; she lost the title to SS Normandie in 1937 and recaptured it in 1938, holding it until 1952 when she was beaten by the new SS United States. With the outbreak of the Second World War, she was converted into a troopship and ferried Allied soldiers for the duration of the war.Following the war, Queen Mary was refitted for passenger service and along with Queen Elizabeth commenced the two-ship transatlantic passenger service for which the two ships were initially built. The two ships dominated the transatlantic passenger transportation market until the dawn of the jet age in the late 1950s. By the mid-1960s, Queen Mary was ageing and, though still among the most popular transatlantic liners, was operating at a loss.After several years of decreased profits for Cunard Line, Queen Mary was officially retired from service in 1967. She left Southampton for the last time on 31 October 1967 and sailed to the port of Long Beach, California, United States. ; Anatomy of the Ship; Photos and illustrations; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 144 pages
