This book weaves together the voices and stories of real Titanic survivors and witnesses to the disaster, from the stewardess Violet Jessop to Captain Arthur Rostron of the Carpathia, who came to the rescue of the sinking ship. Packed with heart-stopping action, devastating drama, fascinating historical details, loads of archival photographs on almost every page, and quotes from primary sources, this gripping story follows the Titanic and its passengers from the ship's celebrated launch at Belfast to her cataclysmic icy end.
