Attractively laid out on illustration-filled pages with texts that speak clearly to their subjects, these books review the technological achievements that have helped to shape history. Each book has between 70 and 110 photos, modern illustrations of historical events, and reproductions of famous illustrations from the past.

The film Titanic added an element of romance to the annals of disasters. This book tells that fascinating story and many more as it reviews the dramatic history of shipwrecks. Readers learn the survivors' stories, encounter tales of heroism and incompetence, and share the tragedies of lost wealth, lost wars, and lost lives.
