Waterstones Says

The most page-turning, accessible account of the most iconic maritime tragedy ever, A Night to Remember focuses on the intense human drama on deck as the mighty RMS Titanic sunk beneath the Atlantic Ocean.

'There is no danger that Titanic will sink. The boat is unsinkable and nothing but inconvenience will be suffered by the passengers.' - Phillip Franklin, White Star Line Vice-President.

On April 15th, 1912, Titanic, the world's largest passenger ship, sank after colliding with an iceberg, claiming more than 1,500 lives. Walter Lord's classic bestselling history of the voyage, the wreck and the aftermath is a tour de force of detailed investigation and the upstairs/downstairs divide.

A Night to Remember provides a vivid, gripping and deeply personal account of the 'unsinkable' Titanic's descent.

“Excellent history book”

Fascinating book about the 1912 disaster of the Titanic. Its frightening to realise that so many people don't know that this is a tragic reality, thinking it was a story made up for the movie... a sad indictment... More
