This book charts the expansion of the marine diesel on the British and Irish short sea routes. All the major motor-driven ships built before 1970 are described in detail, as are the more important vessels built after that date. The story includes the trials and tribulations of these vessels, their crews and passengers. There is also an index of current and former names.
