Overview

April 15, 1912, one hundred years ago, is the date forever associated with the Titanic. This compelling book tells the story of what happened on the Titanic the night it sank, killing more than fifteen hundred people, and is the only book to create a gripping narrative story from the actual testimonials from the American and British trials, all specially edited from more than one thousand pages of courtroom testimonials and arranged chronologically to uncover the true drama and precise detail of that final night.

This book captures the disbelief, chaos, and terror, bringing the tragedy to life through the voices of those who survived it. Stories about the sinking have become legendary—how the band played to the end, how lifeboats were lowered half empty—but despite the films, novels, and academic arguments, only those who were there can separate truth from fiction. This book gives the story back to those people, from the terrible acts of cowardice such as first class passengers attempting to buy their way on to lifeboats to the courageous choices individuals made in sacrifice, and the fateful part luck played in survival.

The Titanic anniversary is sure to bring renewed interest and controversy, and this new book, painstakingly edited for accuracy and human drama, will be the must-read account.
