Campbell McCutcheon tells the story of the First World War hospital ships, from the smallest of motor launches through steam yachts and converted ocean liners. While many ships were lost to accidents, mines or German submarines, many served faithfully throughout the war without loss of life or accident.
Also conveyed is the importance of the Troopships and, how vital the convoys were to transport Canadian and Australasian troops to the UK and France. With many continuing service long after the war had ended.
The latest title in Amberley's Naval World War One history range, proves to be informative and interesting. Beautifully illustrated with two hundred photographs it is a highly detailed and meticulously researched account. Another great read from veteran Naval author Campbell McCutcheon.
