The Mammoth Book of the TitanicBook - 2002
The story of the sinking of the great liner Titanic has been told countless times since that fateful night on April 14, 1912, by authors and film producers alike, but no accounts are as graphic or revealing as those from people who were actually there. Through survivors' tales and contemporary newspaper reports from both sides of the Atlantic, The Mammoth Book of the Titanic strips away the Hollywood gloss and tells the real story of the "unsinkable" vessel. Here are eyewitness accounts full of details that range from poignant to humorous as they follow the Titanic, stage by stage, from its glorious launch in Belfast to the somber sea burial services of those who perished on her first and only voyage.
