At the launching of The Titanic, contemporaries believed the ship was unsinkable, but on Sunday, April 14, 1912, the "greatest liner on earth" was the subject of a terrible human tragedy which claimed the lives of 1522 passengers and crew. Illustrated with fascinating photographs and drawings of the ship and its passengers, this engaging text tells the story of the supposedly unconquerable vessel that ultimately proved to be all too fallible. Readers interested in the history of sea travel or the human response to disaster will find this book to be an invaluable addition to their library.

The history is there and there are many, many photographs. I would have liked a more engaged author. Not such a cut and dry (very dry) delivery. Read full review
