Overview

Published a mere 37 days after the tragedy, Filson Young’s Titanic laid to rest public speculation and rumour with its firsthand account of the sinking of the great ship. For the first time since the Titanic left Southampton on April 10, 1912, the public had a full and detailed view of life on the ship, the events leading up to its collision with an iceberg late on April 14, its tragic sinking in the early hours of April 15, and the rescue of its survivors. Based on the accounts of survivors Young knew and interviewed personally, Titanic remains one of the most complete records of the sinking of the Titanic.

I found this book to be very well written. Much of the observations about the behaviour of people under stress rings true still today.
