His is the most accurate contemporary account of what happened from the moment that the great liner hit the iceberg. the author had gone to bed early that night but was awakened by the shudder that ran through the ship as she struck. In the first part of the book he describes his personal experiences and remarkable escape from death in the icy waters of the Atlantic. From then on he tells the story of each and every boat that escaped from the Titanic in her death-throes.
