Titanic: Triumph and Tragedy Reviews
Stayed up till 3 am to finish this. Was totally fascinating. Again most people know the tragic circumstances that befell The Titanic on the that fateful night in 1912, but this was such an informative look at how this affected so many lives afterward as well. From two orphan brothers that were kidnapped by their father to the people of Southampton who lost many men who served on the ship. The sights that the passengers experienced as they boarded the ship, many archived photos of the sumptuous details and comforts First and Second Class enjoyed, many I have never seen. I couldn't put this down. While some reviewers were put off by the newspaper looking set up of the book it still doesn't detract from the immense information this book provides.
Just read here that there is an updated version with color photographs. I checked out my copy from the local library and they only had the black and white older copy. This book covers everything related to the Titanic. The court ruled that the liability of the Titanic was $97,772.02 with claims against of $16,804, 112.Loss of life on average paid $35,376.Fascinating book and background on everything Titanic.
This is the essential illustrated history of the world's most famous shipwreck, Titanic. Its scope is sweeping, its prose authoritative. There is no greater foundation for study than this refined, encyclopedic tome.
I have not read this straight through, but it is the most comprehensive book on the Titanic that I've come across. Many rare, interesting photos from construction of the ship and after the disaster.
Quite simply the definitive book about Titanic. I've not read any book so well researched, so detailed, and so well written.This really is a must read book.
I've read a lot of Titanic books in my life, and this is probably the single most thorough volume I've experienced. The sheer wealth of detail and collection of photographs is such a treat.
