Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This is a book unlike any other. Rather than offering simply a detailed retelling of the sinking on her maiden voyage, John Maxtone-Graham devotes his considerable knowledge and impeccable prose to a discussion of salient, provocative, and rarely investigated components of the story, including dramatic survivors' accounts of the events of the fateful night, the role of newly in-vented wireless telecommunication in the disaster, the construction and its ramifications at the famous Harland and Wolff shipyard in Belfast, and the dawn rendezvous with the rescue ship . Richly written and vividly detailed, this is the book buffs have been waiting for.


"Maxtone-Graham's take on the Titanic will be catnip to the ship's dedicated buffs."--
