First-hand accounts alongside a wealth of original documents, photographs and letters, this title tells the story of the Titanic, from descriptions of the passengers and the ship inside and out to why the Titanic was considered 'unsinkable' and the dangers of floating ice. Stories of heroism on board, stories from the lifeboats and theories for raising the Titanic are included. The book concludes by considering lessons that were learnt from this disaster.
Photographs and drawings are well-chosen and evocative... recommended. -- School Librarian 20120501 I thoroughly recommend this book for the clear account of the tragedy, the way the pages are laid out, the quality of the photos and for the accounts of the survivors. -- Carousel 20120701
