Unsinkable: The Full Story of the RMS Titanic Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A masterful treatment of the Titanic disaster with a new look at the role played by the mystery ship California. --Walter Lord, author of A Night to Remember

The first modern work to give a comprehensive picture of the Titanic and the people intertwined with her fate, from disaster to recovery. Drawn from primary sources and contemporary accounts, this new narrative allows readers to come to their own conclusions about this legendary vessel.

Synopsis:

No other ship in history has attracted so much attention, stirred up such powerful emotion, or accumulated as many legends and myths as Titanic. "Unsinkable" is a fresh look at this incredible story, one that centers on the people who built the ship, crewed her, and sailed on her. It follows the great ship as she grows on the ways at Harland & Wolff in Belfast, sails from Southampton toward her unexpected rendezvous with an iceberg, then slowly sinks into the North Atlantic, forever shattering the optimistic complacency of her era. The story doesn't end there, however, for the tale continues through the high drama of the U.S. Senate investigation and the British Board of Trade inquiry, then introduces the "mystery ship" Californian, whose officers watched Titanic sink and did nothing for fear of being subjected to their sleeping captain's wrath. The narrative then carries on with the recovery of many of Titanic's dead and their interment at Halifax, Nova Scotia, through the discovery of the wreck in 1985, and finally to the abortive 1996 expedition to raise a section of her rusted hull.

Synopsis:

Drawn from primary sources and contemporary accounts, this new narrative, rather than providing a simple revisionist view, allows readers to come to their own conclusions about the "Titanic" and the people intertwined with her fate.
