Astern Business – 75 Years Of U.K. Shipbuilding

The author, who spent 40 years in the ship building and ship repair business, reflects upon the progress and demise of U.K. shipbuilding between 1920 and 1995. Based upon his experience, inside knowledge and careful research, he puts forward his conclusions about those factors, both within and without the industry, that led to decline. With 55 illustrations and 5 appendices, this 199-page A5 book plots a course through the trials and tribulations of depression, wartime, re-organisations and nationalisation in a compact and readable study of the life and soul of the British Shipbuilding Industry.
