This book describes 499 passenger ships that were lost during both World Wars. A typical entry has about 1/4 page of text (small print). It gives the ship's basic specifications, a brief operating history, and a good description of how the ship was destroyed. Almost half of the ships have a good photograph showing the ship either during operation or its sinking. These losses are organized chronologically, with one chapter for each year. There is an index. These entries include passenger ships in both commercial use and military conversion (such as transports). It even includes some Japanese aircraft carriers that were converted from passenger ships during construction.

The appendix has list of the 25 largest ships lost and the 25 losses with greatest casualties. Another appendix shows the totals the number of ships sunk, by cause, each year. World War I had 135 sinkings by submarine, 18 by mines, 11 by surface raiders, plus four by other causes. World War II saw 300 sinkings by submarine, 88 sinkings by aircraft, 40 by mines, 28 by scuttling, 25 by surface raiders, and 17 sinkings by other causes. There were 75 sinkings in 1942, 71 sinkings in 1917 and 60 sinkings in 1943.

Those of us who study ship wrecks likely know about famous wartime sinkings such as the Lusitania and Athenia, but this book shows just how many others went down as well. The Rex, an Italian liner over 50,000 tons, went down after being hit by at least 123 rockets! Japan suffered terribly, losing thousands of lives to American submarines in the Pacific. The worst disasters of all occurred in the Baltic in early 1945, when Soviet subs sank ships loaded with thousands of German refugees. This is a fine source for anyone looking into passenger ship losses during both

World Wars.

Like the companion volume on peacetime passenger ship losses, this book is a thorough, well-illustrated review of passenger ship sinkings. Although this format makes this a handy reference volume, its a little more laborious to read it cover to cover. Within those limitations, I found the book to be readable and very enjoyable.
