An excellent 'read'
This is a facinating book, filled with the drama of a war time tragedy, filled with human suffering and also of tragic errors that resulted in the loss of so many.
Narrated in a voice, tone and style that is not only easy to listen to - and that places further emphasis on the tragedy that unfolds, this is a must read, even for those otherwise not interested in historical events.

Highy inflated reviews. This is the Ann Landers version of the sinking. The author provides no analysis of information but instead dwells on the personal adpects of individuals involved in this tragic event. Certainly the horror of this early terrorist act is captured but there is no overarching theme to the book other than the human tragedy.
