Publisher's Summary

The sinking of the Titanic on her maiden voyage in 1912 is one of the most dramatic stories in maritime history. The largest passenger steamship in the world, fitted with more advanced safety features than any of her rivals, she was proclaimed to be virtually unsinkable. Just how and why the Titanic foundered on such a beautiful April evening is the subject of this fascinating book. Author Rupert Matthews explores the evidence behind the stories of heroism and cowardice related by survivors, and investigates the many theories surrounding the great ship's tragic loss.

Really enjoyed this book. Like many I am fascinated by the Titanic but still learned some things I never knew from this book.

Detailed and informative

A detailed and un-hysterical documentary of the Titanic, which accounts clearly and engagingly not only the story of the sinking, but also the reasons that Titanic existed in the first place, and the events which happened afterwards. Thoroughly enjoyed.

A good factual account of the tragic disaster.

This is factual account of the disaster which befell the unsinkable Titanic. The story is very well narrated. If what you are looking for is an accurate account of what happened during the unfolding disaster and after, using actual witness accounts, then this should be the first audiobook you should reach for.! A thoroughly interesting and gripping read.

Titanic

A very enjoyable retelling of the fate of the Titanic. I'm sure there are other books out there that go into more technical detail about the sinking . This version obviously covers all the salient points, time, date, place and main characters but somehow seems to miss the drama of the terrible tragedy.
