The original 1912 news accounts of the Titanic disaster include the first-hand accounts of survivors as told to reporters who met the ship bringing them from where they were saved from lifeboats. The surviving crew describes the crucial moments after the ship hit the iceberg. A crewman testifies just three days after the sinking that the ship had a fire in its coal bunkers from the time it set sail.

Iceberg did not jump out and attack theTitanic
Barry Abram's expression as he told the story
I found the fake news reports the most memorable
Again, his expression as he told the story
The iceberg did not jump out and attack the Titanic!!!
As I was rereading Titanic 1912, my husband had the news channel on TV. I irony was not lost on me as I read about the ‘misunderstandings’ in the initial news coverage. Or the errors mixed with the conjured and fabricated news stories. Some things never change! Even armchair quarterbacks still believe the notion that somehow the rich were favored for escaping the sinking ship while the lower classes died. They must have seen the movie instead of reading the lists of those who went down with the ship. As usual, Ken Rossignol went to original sources to garner information for this book. Thank goodness he took H.L. Mencken’s advice that a cynic is a man who, when he smells flowers, looks around for a coffin. Ken looks around and carefully checks out all of the ‘coffins’ he finds. There is a lot of information in this book and I highly recommend it for those whose minds aren’t already made up. The iceberg did not jump out and attack the Titanic!!!
