2. September 2013 Classic Liners
the world of ocean liners, those built for French lines were the epitome of style and panache, and SS Normandie perhaps the pinnacle of this. When she entered service in 1935, she was the largest, longest, fastest and certainly the best fed ship of her time, serving the finest food imaginable in a dining room longer than the Hall of Mirrors at Versailles. Normandie emobodied high glamour and was a firm favourite of many, albeit for a short time. Times were changing and even the French government's massive subsidies to the builders, an attempt to make Normandie a flagship for the drive out of the Depression. could only work for so long, as the Second World War drew nearer. She might have been a valuable troopship, and served a the USS Lafayette for a time, but caught fire at her New York pier in 1942. The great ship was salvaged, but with an expensive restoration in prospect she could not escape being scrapped in 1946-47. Through beautiful illustrations and evocative writing, William H.Miller presents the story of one of the most lavish liners ever to cross the seas.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Bill Miller at his best - again. 11. November 2013
Von R. Lepien - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Bill Miller has been pumping books out about ocean liners for a number of years now - which is a good thing! Lots of great photos and a concise history of the ship and/or ships in his numerous books. He's now taken on doing a book on the beautiful French liner "Normandie" - probably the most noted and collected liner except for the "Titanic". Unfortunately the "Normandie" had a short career too. Well worth the price for the great selection of photos alone. Mr. Miller keep up the good work.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Very Disappointing 30. Dezember 2013
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
This book is a highly abbreviated history of the SS NORMANDIE and consists of limited text and many photographs with brief captions. Virtually all of the photographs of the ship itself are in black and white, are generally small, and are of fair quality. Almost all of the color illustrations are of travel posters and of selected memorabilia from a South Street Seaport exhibition; although, there are a few color photographs of the ship itself that are interesting.

My primary problem with this book is that the ship itself is poorly described. A coherent presentation of her principal characteristics cannot be found nor can much information regarding her design and systems. There is no inboard profile showing the general internal arrangements beyond an almost illegible page from a brochure. An argument could be made that much of this can be found in other books; however, this is also true of the basic content of this book. A significant portion of the book (13 out of 95 pages) is devoted to the aforementioned travel posters, which while visually interesting, tell little about the ship.

It appears as if the book was assembled from the author's large collection of passenger liner photographs and memorabilia. It conveys the impression of an assemblage of odds and ends for the sole purpose of pulling together yet another book on passenger liners. The contents are poorly integrated and do not really add anything to the body of knowledge associated with the SS NORMANDIE. It is too superficial for the knowledgeable enthusiast and is not sufficiently complete or well organized for a neophyte wanting to learn about the ship.
4.0 von 5 Sternen Bill Miller keeps it coming! 23. April 2014

Another in the potted history of great Atlantic Liners, Bill's specialty.
For liner enthusiasts it's a bit more of the same. A4 Paperback at 95 pages limits the author to relating the story familiar to many enthusiast but a good read to the novice or Art Deco fan.
Lots of photos that puts 'Normandie" into perspective with her contemporaries. Especially when lined up along side her rival, 'Queen Mary'. The Normandie was design streets ahead of the old dowager! Sadly, 'Normandie's' career was short lived, burnt out at her New York Pier in 1942. A part of her history that may have been expanded on.
Good coverage of the 'French Line' history but more interesting is Miller's volume on the 'Ile de France' and Liberte' in the same series. That book covers the histories of two ships normally out of the limelight and is something refreshing to the usual.
4.0 von 5 Sternen A nice short work on this fine liner. 8. April 2014
Von William W. Farkas - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
A nice, concise overview of the short and tragic career of this illustrious ship, the most beautiful and luxurious liner of all time.
The cover art was worth the price of the book alone - really captured the spirit of this grand vessel.
4.0 von 5 Sternen nice little bk 24. Februar 2014
Von Gregory M. Lugn - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
well illustrated for its size, though photo coverage of the ship's interior is not extensive, there are color photos of furnishings from museum exhibits which is a +.
