More Description

At 46,328 tons, the RMS Titanic was the largest ship afloat in 1912 and also the largest moving object ever made by man. It was also the most luxurious, boasting many features unheard of in oceangoing liners. It was considered "unsinkable." On the morning of Wednesday, April 10, 1912, the pride of the White Star Line slowly began its journey into infamy. On the evening of Monday the 15th, strange, unbelievable rumors began their spread, chiefly around Belfast, Liverpool, Southampton, and London, cities having links to the new, great, and powerful Atlantic liner. How could anything have gone wrong? Surely it was impossible. The newspaper headlines the following morning were to shake the whole of Britain, and indeed the world, with the news that tragedy had befallen the Titanic. With many, often conflicting, reports over the next months, the full story of the disaster slowly unfolded in subsequent editions of the press. The dramatic reports from the British press are presented here in full: accounts from the first headlines to the end of the first inquiry, followed by eager readers around the world. These stories and photographs combine in a book that will appeal to general readers and Titanic followers alike.
