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.
Brad Hooper
It's a legendary disaster, one we've all heard about--the April 1912 sinking of the liner "Titanic" in the North Atlantic after striking an iceberg on its maiden voyage from its home port of Liverpool to New York, with tremendous loss of life. The "Titanic" incident remains in our consciousness as the epitome of technology's hubris: the great ship was not only thought but called unsinkable at its launching. Our fascination with the "Titanic"'s brief life and tragic end remains; and to help satiate our continued appetite is this feast, an oversize "biography," as it were. There's plenty of rich text describing construction, furnishings, and events on the fateful night of April 14-15; the liberal supply of photographs of the ship contributes definite appeal; but it is the illustrations done especially for inclusion here that stop the heart. Ken Marschall's beautiful full-color paintings reconstruct what life was like on board; also, he imagines scenes of the sinking as viewed by those passengers fortunate enough to find themselves in one of the too-few lifeboats. The book does not end with the official inquiry into the causes of the accident, but includes information on and more of Marschall's spectacular paintings of the 1985 discovery and exploration of the remains of the "Titanic" on the ocean floor. (The book, by the way, is introduced by Robert Ballard, who led the location and exploration team.) An especially evocative book.

    This is an excellent book. It gives you very good illastrations, and a good history of the famous ship. I first learned about the Titanic when I was in 3rd grade (I'm now in 8th) and I've been obsessed with it ever since. This book is a must have for any person interested with the Titanic.
