This book combines two survivors' vivid accounts of the greatest maritime disaster in history: the sinking of the Titanic. The information contained in Colonel Archibald Gracie's Titanic: A Survivor's Story is available from no other source. He provides details of those final moments, including names of passengers pulled from the ocean and of those men who, in a panic, jumped into lifeboats as they were being lowered, causing injury and further danger to life. Walter Lord, author of A Night to Remember, comments that Gracie's book-written shortly before he died from the exposure he suffered on that night-is "invaluable for chasing down who went in what boat, " and calls Gracie "an indefatigable detective."
