The Sinking of the Titanic and Great Sea Disasters by Bob Garner

Logan Marshall's book "The Sinking of the Titanic and Great Sea Disasters" gives readers a first-hand account of the greatest sea disaster of all time straight from the survivors of the ill-fated sunken ship. Unlike many of the books about the Titanic that was written recently, Logan Marshall was fortunate that he was able to interview the survivors of the Titanic and access to all the important documents about the ship, including the diagrams, maps and actual photographs related to the disaster. With this, he was able to write the best book that has a complete and accurate account of the Titanic and its tragic fate.

The Titanic as most people know was the biggest ocean liner during her time and was hailed as "unsinkable" by the company which made it. Officially known as the RMS Titanic, this mammoth ship can carry more than 2,000 passengers and owned by British shipping company White Star Line. The ship has a double-bottomed hull and watertight compartments which make her "unsinkable" according to her owners. But as we all know, this claim was proven to be wrong when she sank in the North Atlantic during her maiden voyage.

Logan Marshall did well to make use of all the resources that were at his disposal. Not only was he able to make detailed descriptions of the disaster, he was also able to narrate them well from a human point of view without compromising any truth about the biggest sea tragedy of all time. This book is a must read for anybody who's deeply interested in the Titanic and its unfortunate end.

The movie "Titanic" is now considered as a timeless classic and so is this book. If you're a fan of the movie which features Leonardo Di Caprio and Kate Winslet, you'll also like reading this book.

I am very pleased about this edition . As a marine historian , I was very curious to read a book about "Titanic" that was published right after the sinking . This fulfilled my expectations fully . I was very pleased to see that the book is a faithful reproduction of the original with the cover design and illustrations . The stories in the book are quite good and they give an interesting insight into what the accident meant to people in 1912. It is a great book for light , easy reading as the chapters are short but very informative. . One aspect about this book I liked very much was that although the book is probably the most accurate 1912 account the accident , some of the facts are not entirely accurate . I liked that because the men who complied this book did not understand all of the details as well as people do in the present which was typical of the period . Still I would recommend this book for anyone who is intersted in "Titanic" or the culture of the Edwardian era . This book is a must for someone who is intersted in reading first-hand accounts of the accident and ocean liner lovers .
