    I've a huge appetite for maritime history and the story of the Andrea Doria colliding with the Stockholm is a personal favorite. Of the many accounts I've read about this tragic event, this is, in my opinion, the best read. The survivor's stories stay with you and your heart breaks for the senselessness of it.

    I've read this book once a year for the past, oh, twenty years. The story of how the Andrea Doria collided with the Stockholm is in my mind waaay more interesting than the story of the Titanic. How was it possible for two mammoth ships to steer directly into each other? When tested by this disaster, some people became heroes and some behaved abominably. I will never forget the stories of the last man left alive aboard the Andrea Doria, the girl who was thrown in her bed from one ship to the other, the crewmembers of the Andrea Doria who dressed as women to get into the lifeboats, the woman who threw her baby into the sea because she panicked, the doctor who worked tirelessly to save his wife, or the Captain of the Andrea Doria finally addressing the ship after hours had passed with a single trembling word. With today's sad new "Chicken of the Sea" cruise shipwreck incident, this book becomes more timely than ever.

    This is the story of the tragic sinking of a great transatlantic liner, the Andrea Doria, on July 25, 1956. The story tells of the rescue attempt. Unlike the Titanic, most of the passengers and crew were rescued and survived, about 1660 people. Forty-six people perished. The author describes the bravery and cowardice, and fears of the passengers and the crew. In reading the book you get the sense that you are right there viewing everything that happens. A remarkable story. Wikipedia claims that "the Andrea Doria was the last major transatlantic passenger vessel to sink before aircraft became the preferred method of travel."

    Interesting story. Well researched. The problem is that the book is definitely dated.

    A book with peaks and valleys. The opening of the circumstances that led to the crash, was a peak, along with the account of the trial. The middle section concerning the rescue was less satisfying. History better remembers the Titanic because the the staggering loss of life. It is too bad this story isn't more widely known for the saving of over 90% of the passengers and crew of the Andrea Doria.

    Very well-written account of the collision of the Stockholm with the Andrea Doria on July 25, 1956 off the coast of Nantucket.
