Just received, today, a copy of Les Streater's 2005 book l'Atlantique: Queen of the South Atlantic, and after reading it I cannot recommend it highly enough! l'Atlantique, for those not familiar, was a Normandie equivalent on the South American run, with interiors that equalled and in many cases surpassed those of her better known 'cousin' for want of a better term. She was introduced in late 1931 and destroyed by fire in early 1933, so even in her own time she was little known. Despite the brief life of the liner, Mr. Streater managed to fill 120 pages without resorting to padding, with the section pertaining to the fire particularly interesting. The book is lavishly illustrated, with both color and black and white views, and as a bonus sports a cover painting by Stephen Card, the world's foremost maritime artist. If you can pick this up on Amazon, do so, for it is worth the cover price!
