More than one hundred and fifty years of exciting maritime history are vividly described and richly illustrated in a set of five books, eminently researched and written by the two top experts in the field of HAL history.

Capt. Albert J. Schoonderbeek BSC. MNI. decided to go to sea when he was seven years old. He studied at the world’s oldest Maritime Academy in Amsterdam. HAL promoted him to captain in 2000, and to Fleet master in 2014. He has published many books and articles about the history of Holland America Line.
Dr. Nico Guns Ph.D. studied at the Universities of Leiden and Amsterdam. For many years he was involved in scientific research into social and psychological aspects of the Royal Netherlands Navy. He has published many books and articles about the Dutch Merchant Navy in the period 1860–1960.

The series, published on occasion of Holland America’s 2023 Jubilee Year, covers a wide range of topics and shows thousands of photos not included in previous books about HAL.
