The book is beautifully written, Ian Johnston is an excellent writer and communicator. The photographs the book provides are outstanding, as I said earlier I am a maritime history buff, but even I hadn't seen many of these pictures before.
The book is beautifully written, Ian Johnston is an excellent writer and communicator. The history of the yard, its expansion over the decades to encompass more and more of the banks of the River Clyde, the ships it produced, and the beginning of the end of the yard after the QE2's launch in the late 1960's-early 70's are well documented in this book.

Ships for all Nations - Ian Johnston. The future of John Brown & Co was in the balance. John Brown’s became the Clydebank Division, thus relieving the parent John Brown Co of a financially burdensome yard. The signing of the high-profile contract in December 1930 for the Cunard liner Queen Mary kept the yard open. However, within a year, elation at winning the contract gave way to abject misery as the ship was suspended as a consequence of the deepening financial chaos internationally and the onset of the Great Depression.

John Brown and Company of Clydebank was a Scottish marine engineering and shipbuilding firm. It built many notable and world-famous ships including RMS Lusitania, HMS Hood, HMS Repulse, RMS Queen Mary, RMS Queen Elizabeth and the Queen Elizabeth 2. At its height, from 1900 to the 1950s, it was one of the most highly regarded, and internationally famous, shipbuilding companies in the world.
IAN JOHNSTON was brought up in a shipbuilding family, although his own career was in graphic design. A lifetime’s interest in ships and shipbuilding has borne fruit in a number of publications, including Ships for a Nation, a history of John Brown’s, and Beardmore Built, the story of another great Clydeside yard.
