Book Description
This is the story of the world’s most infamous ship, told in the words of those who designed her, built her, sailed her and survived her sinking. Starting from its original conception and design by the owners and naval architects at the White Star Line through construction at Harland and Wolff’s shipyards in Belfast, Nick Barratt explores the pre-history of the Titanic. He examines the aspirations of the owners, the realities of construction and the anticipation of the first sea-tests, revealing that the seeds of disaster were sown by the failure to implement sealed bulkheads. Barratt then looks at the Titanic’s maiden voyage in April 1912, examining the lives of various passengers in more detail, from the first-class aristocrats to the families in third-class and steerage. Similarly, the stories of representatives from the White Star Line who were on board, as well as crew members, are told in their own words to offer a very different perspective on the voyage. Finally, the book examines the disaster itself when Titanic struck the iceberg and sank hours later. Survivors from passengers and crew recount what happened, taking us back in time to the full horror of that freezing Atlantic night when up to 1,520 people perished.
