Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
No ship has continued to capture the public's imagination like the White Star Liner R.M.S. Titanic. The events that unfolded on Sunday, April 14, 1912 have been told in many books, including such works as Walter Lord's A Night To Remember ( LJ 10/15/55) and Robert D. Ballard's Discovery of the Titanic ( LJ 1/88). Lynch (historian, Titanic Historical Society) and artist Marschall have collaborated in this latest history of that fateful event. Combining photographs, stunning paintings, and a gripping text, they have provided, as Ballard states in his introduction, the next best thing to a visit to the Titanic. Lynch raises interesting questions that may never be answered: Most tantalizingly, should First Officer Murdoch, on watch on the bridge during the 60 seconds between the sighting of the iceberg and the collision, have given different commands? This latest history of one of the sea's greatest tragedies is a visual tour de force that will please both general reader and maritime history enthusiasts. Essential for all libraries.-- Harold N. Boyer, Marple P.L., Broomall, Pa.

    The Best Titanic Book Out There

    If you're interested in Titanic, you absolutely must buy this book. I have several on the great ship, but this is by far my favorite. Don Lynch and Ken Marschall are the best Titanic historians out there, and Marschall's paintings are stunning.

    Amazing.

    Everything about the Titanic interests me.For all the years I have been interested it her, I haven't found a such amazing book. The beautiful illustrations and the words. The books goes from the moment Joseph Bruce Ismay thought of the idea at a dinner to the sinking and even to the findings by Robert D. Ballard and even more! An amazing book.
