Description

British history is rich in enthralling stories: pivotal moments that changed the future of the country; moments of drama, suspense, intrigue. Go right to the heart of the action of the Titanic disaster. Titanic steamed through the darkness of the night, her sharp prow cutting through the chill water like a knife through butter. From the moment of collision to hundreds of survivors waiting for rescue in the icy water, this account captures the moments at the very heart of the Titanic drama. Plunging the reader into the middle of the story, this is narrative history at its most evocative and readable. Charting the sinking through the accounts of several different survivors, W. B. Bartlett is able to build up a picture of events through the eyes of third-class passengers and those who experienced tragedy moment by moment, from the first lurch to the scramble for life boats.
