Titanic tragedy : a new look at the lost liner

John Maxtone-Graham.

Maritime historian Maxtone-Graham, a Scottish-American New Yorker, has written dozens of books about North Atlantic liners. He offers general readers an extensively researched, accessible account of the RMS Titanic, from the events leading up to its creation and ill-fated voyage through those following the disaster. The text incorporates testimony of some of the survivors interviewed by the author 40 years ago, and seven previously unpublished Titanic "letters" by American historian, Walter Lord, in which he composed parodies about life aboard the doomed ship.
