No one ever dreamed that her first voyage would also be her last. To the elegantly dressed first-class passengers who swept down the Grand Staircase on their way to dinner, the Titanic seemed to be the ultimate in comfort and security. But only hours later the greatest ship ever built would lie on the bottom of the Atlantic and her few surviving passengers would be left shivering in lifeboats.
Now the complete story of the "unsinkable" Titanic - from her construction and launch to her sinking and rediscovery - is told in words and hundreds of pictures in one magnificent, lavishly illustrated volume.

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.
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.
This is a great bookx to add to your collection of book on Titanic. With stunning pictures and great facts this book is a MUST have.
