The outbreak of the Second World War created a critical need for Britain to assemble her troops from all corners of her far-flung empire. As the world's greatest maritime power the passenger liners of her merchant fleet were transformed into troopships able to carry thousands of troops. The great Cunarders Queen Mary and Queen Elizabeth were indisputably the crown jewels of this fleet because of their speed, size and elegance. Each could ferry more than 16,000 troops during a crossing, the equivalent of an entire army division. Capable of speeds more than twice as fast as the quickest convoys, the Queens always sailed alone, defying German U-Boats. Such attractive targets were they that Hitler even placed a bounty on them. Together they carried over one million military personnel. Most important of all they lived on to tell the tale and enjoy more days of glory post-war
