The classic minute-by-minute account of the sinking of the Titanic, in a 50th anniversary edition with a new introduction by Nathaniel Philbrick
First published in 1955, A Night to Remember remains a completely riveting account of the Titanic's fatal collision and the behavior of the passengers and crew, both noble and ignominious. Some sacrificed their lives, while others fought like animals for their own survival. Wives beseeched husbands to join them in lifeboats; gentlemen went taut-lipped to their deaths in full evening dress; and hundreds of steerage passengers, trapped below decks, sought help in vain.
Available for the first time in trade paperback and with a new introduction for the 50th anniversary edition by Nathaniel Phil-brick, author of In the Heart of the Sea and Sea of Glory, Walter Lord's classic minute-by-minute re-creation is as vivid now as it was upon first publication fifty years ago. From the initial distress flares to the struggles of those left adrift for hours in freezing waters, this semicentennial edition brings that moonlit night in 1912 to life for a new generation of readers.
About: Recounts the demise of the 'unsinkable' Titanic, the massive luxury liner that housed extravagances such as a French 'sidewalk cafe' and a grand staircase, but failed to provide enough lifeboats for the 2,207 passengers on board.
About: She was four city blocks long, boasting the latest, most ingenious safety devices of the age, a French sidewalk cafe, a grand staircase worthy of an opera house, private promenade decks--but only 20 lifeboats for the 2,207 passengers on board.
