On April 15, 1912 the impossible happened when the Titanic sank to the bottom of the North Atlantic. The rich and powerful of Britain and the US, complacent in their belief that nature herself could be tamed, were shaken to the core. The sinking of the Titanic was a momentous event in the 20th century. Titanic Voices takes you back to that time, reliving those events through the first-hand accounts of those who were actually there. Using many previously unpublished photographs, letters, and oral histories, the book uniquely examines the lives of survivors and victims. It also shows how the home port of Southampton, its people, and the Titanic have been inextricably linked from even before the ship was built up to the present day. A color section illustrates some of the many objects, letters and paintings relating to the disaster.
