Twice the length and six times the displacement of any contemporary vessel, the Great Eastern was a technological challenge, the subject of experiment and setback, disaster and accomplishment. Conceived and built by some of the leading engineers of the 19th Century, the ship involved designinnovations still relevant today. Its career soared to the triumph of laying the first trans-Atlantic cable and plunged to the ignominy of a floating department store advertisement. This book traces the ship, its designers and accomplishments in the context of its time.
