She was called “the ship that God himself couldn’t sink,” yet on her maiden voyage, the ship Titanic brushed an iceberg and sank less than three hours later, carrying 1,503 men, women, and children to their death. In this dramatic and historic recreation of the bravery and agony that marked that fateful night, author and historian Walter Lord paints a portrait of the last hours of the Titanic’s first and final voyage.

No Rose. No Jack. No problem!

Although this book was written in the 1950s the facts are scientifically accurate as opposed to many of the other stories that were being passed around at that time,

He does not over dramatize this event nor does he sugar coat it. Nonetheless it did leave me feeling dreadfully sad for these poor souls and quite angry for the useless loss of life. In retrospect we now know these lives could have easily been saved.

This book was the source material for a movie of the same name starring Kenneth Moore. I highly recommend this book as we owe so much to those who died on Titanic. Many laws and regulations changed due to this disaster. Every time you get on a boat and you see all those life boats remember that it was because they died we have an excellent chance of getting back to shore dry, safe and sound.

In addition Richard Davidson's performance is so perfect I felt proud to be British!
