Publisher Comments:

She was the world's biggest-ever ship. A luxurious miracle of twentieth-century technology, the Titantic was equipped with the most ingenious safety devices of the time. Yet on a moonlit night in 1912, the "unsinkable" Titantic raced across the glassy Atlantic on her maiden voyage, with only twenty lifeboats for 2,207 passengers. A Night To Remember is the gut-wrenching, minute-by minute account of her fatal collision with an iceberg and how the resulting tragedy brought out the best and worst in human nature. Some gave their lives for others, some fought like animals for survival. Wives beseeched husbands to join them in the boats; gentlemen went taut-lipped to their deaths in full evening dress; hundreds of steerage passengers, trapped belowdecks. Sought help in vain.

A Night To Remember

From the first distress flares to the struggles of those left adrift for hours in freezing waters, here is the legendary disaster relived by the few who survived and can never forget the many who did not.

Gold Gato, February 28, 2014 (view all comments by Gold Gato)
I've never trusted the month of April. It should be the month of flowers and bunnies and eggs and bees, which it is. But April is also the month of disasters...the 1906 Earthquake and Fire, Chernobyl, the Oklahoma City Bombing, Columbine and, of course, the Sinking of the Titanic. The 'S' is capitalized.

Prior to reading Walter Lord's version of the Sinking, the Titanic was just another shipwreck to me, but forever after, it is THE shipwreck. Under Lord's framing, it's also the end of the Gilded Age when industrial magnates could wear warm furs while sitting top deck on the greatest ocean liner ever built. The stories of the survivors and the drowned so shook me, I remember having to carry a flashlight to bed so I could read this adventure under covers without anyone else in the house knowing. There are a number of books about the Titanic, but there really is only one. Lord's Titanic.

I will show you fear in a handful of dust...yes, April is the cruellest month.

Book Season = Spring (still won't travel by boat)
