When she set sail on her doomed maiden voyage in April 1912, RMS "Titanic" was the jewel in the crown of the White Star Line. A floating palace, she was the largest and most technologically advanced moving object in the world. It spent barely five days at sea, but a skilled workforce of thousands of men and women had spent years building the ship in a remarkable feat of design and engineering. Here is the story of the riveters, who risked deafness from hammering millions of rivets that held together the enormous steel hull; the engineers, who had the gargantuan task of fitting engines to power the massive ship across the Atlantic at 23 knots; the electricians, who installed state-of-the-art communications systems and enormous steam-driven generators; and the carpenters, cabinetmakers, and artisans who labored over every last detail of the opulent state rooms. From the engine room to the ballroom, this book--the companion volume to the five-part National Geographic documentary series "Rebuilding Titanic" (spring 2011)--is a testament to those who designed, built, and fitted the "ship of dreams."
