One of the first books published after the tragic loss of the Titanic, The Sinking of the Titanic and Great Sea Disasters is a detailed account of the events the night of April 14-15, 1912, and how the tragic loss of life could have been averted. The largest ocean liner of her time, Titanic was on her maiden voyage when she struck an iceberg and sank in the frigid North Atlantic, taking more than 1,500 passengers and crew with her. The Sinking of the Titanic and Great Sea Disasters is a valuable report of the disaster and a must-read for anyone interested in Titanic lore. The sinking of the Titanic in the north Atlantic in the early hours of April 15, 1912 is arguably the most famous peacetime maritime disaster of modern history, and one that continues to capture popular imagination a century later. HarperPerennial Classics brings great works of literature to life in digital format, upholding the highest standards in ebook production and celebrating reading in all its forms. Look for more titles in the HarperPerennial Classics collection to build your digital library.
It seems that every book written about the doomed liner has come back into print. This title from 1912, the same year as the accident, is undoubtedly one of the first ever published. Although new volumes include much more updated information, these firsthand accounts by several surviving passengers can still grab you. If you have room for one more Titanic title, make it this one.
