This book is very well written, thought provoking, and insightful. I thought this was THE Titanic book to read if you wanted any reliable information...

However, I have recently discovered there is more to the story that has surfaced in the last few years that Walter Lord could not have known when he wrote A Night to Remember and the Night Lives On.

I do not hold the fact against him, and will continue recommending this book to my friends. However, I will be sure to add that there is more and less to the story than this author can give, and the Titanic should be researched from many sources.

The most awesome ocean-going vessel the world had ever seen, the mighty TITANIC struck an iceburg and sank on the night of April 14, 1912, carrying more than 1500 souls-and uncountable secrets-to the icy bottom of the mid-Atlantic.

The most awesome ocean-going vessel the world had ever seen, the mighty TITANIC struck an iceberg and sank on the night of April 14, 1912, carrying more than 1500 souls--and uncountable secrets--to the icy bottom of the mid-Atlantic. Why did the crew steam full speed ahead into dangerous waters despite six wireless warnings? How able was the doomed behemoth's "superb seaman" Captain Smith? Why did the nearby ship Californian ignore Titanic's distress signals? How could such a disaster ever have occurred?

Another book on the Titanic that discusses stories that haven't been rehashed and some of the other stories behind the sinking of the "Unsinkable" ship.

This is a good book. I've always been fascinated by the Titanic and was quite pleased with this book, as it gave me a different perspective on things. I recommend this book to anyone.

... The length of the gash in the Titanic was 3 foot fields long... just one of the interesting facts in the book. I liked it a lot.
