The Titanic's demise more than 100 years ago still invites curiosity, fascination and conjecture. This is a meticulously reconstructed adventure of the legendary disaster. Author Jim Pipe assumes the role of one of the many journalists that covered the maiden voyage. He describes the facts: the financiers and builders, the shipyard, the layout and state-of-the-art technology, the passengers, the appointments, staterooms, dining rooms and more, and also the "hidden" spaces used by the lower-class passengers and the crew… And of course, he conveys the public astonishment at this new "wonder of the world," the biggest ship ever, and unsinkable! The narrator's imaginary account is combined with period photographs, illustrations, tip-ins, booklets and other ephemera and eyewitness accounts of the sinking, including those by surviving children. He covers the aftermath of the tragedy and includes the reports and inquiries of the official investigation.
