About the Book

ON ITS LAUNCH AT THE HARLAND AND WOLFF SHIPYARD IN BELFAST, THE TITANIC AWED THE WORLD. IT WAS A MAGNIFICENT ENGINEERING ACHIEVEMENT IN A GOLDEN AGE OF SHIPBUILDING. ITS LAVISH EXTRAVAGANCE AND SHEER RECORD-BREAKING SIZE HAD THE WHITE STAR LINE'S RIVALS DASHING BACK TO THEIR DRAWING BOARDS. THE TITANIC ATTRACTED THE RICH AND FAMOUS AND WITH THEM THE ENTIRE WORLD'S ATTENTION. BUT ITS SINKING AND THE LOSS OF OVER 1,500 LIVES HAVE MADE ITS NAME SYNONYMOUS WITH TRAGEDY, THE SHIP ITSELF NOW REPRESENTING POOR JUDGEMENT, BAD PLANNING, AND GROSS NEGLIGENCE.
