    HistoryThe Liberty ship was a class of cargo ship built in the United States during World War II to replace losses in the British merchant marine due to German U-Boats. The ships were mass produced and were purchased both for the US fleet and lend-lease deliveries of war materiel to Great Britain and the Soviet Union.
