On Board RMS Titanic : Memories of the Maiden Voyage, Paperback / softback Book

On Board RMS Titanic : Memories of the Maiden Voyage Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


'It would make the stones cry to hear those on board shrieking' - Daniel Buckley, third-class passenger For the first time, in this moving new book, Titanic's passengers and crewmen are permitted to tell the story of that lamentable disaster entirely in their own words.

Included are letters, postcards, diary entries and memoirs that were written before, during and immediately after the maiden voyage itself.

Many of the pre-sailing documents were composed by people who later lost their lives in the sinking and represent the last communications that these people ever had with their friends and loved ones at home.

The subsequent letters and postcards give an unparalleled description of the events that occurred during the five days that Titanic was at sea, and the correspondence by survivors after the tragedy describes the horror of the disaster itself and the heartbreak they experienced at the loss of those they loved.

This poignant compilation, by Titanic expert George Behe, also contains brief biographies of the passengers and crewmen, victims, as well as survivors, who wrote the documents in question.
