Epigraph
There was peace, and the world had an even tenor
to its ways. True enough, from time to time there
were events - catastrophes - like the Johnstown
Flood, the San Francisco Earthquake, or floods in
China - which stirred the sleeping world, but not
enough to keep it from resuming its slumber. It
seems to me that the disaster about to occur was
the event, which not only made the world rub its
eyes and awake, but woke with a start, keeping it
moving at a rapidly accelerating pace ever since,
with less and less peace, satisfaction and happi-
ness... To my mind the world of today awoke April 15, 1912.

-J0HN B. THAYER,
Titanic passenger
Dedication
First words
In the spring of 1851, the graceful expanse of London's Hyde Park was packed with a congregation awaiting the event of the century.

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0140166912, Paperback)

The most scrupulous of the recent spate of books on the Titanic disaster, Wyn Craig Wade's book relies on survivors' accounts to establish some startling facts, including that almost two-thirds of the first-class passengers survived while only a quarter of the steerage passengers made it to safety. And that those in the lifeboats chose to ignore the piteous cries of passengers in the water, almost all of whom perished. This chilling account demonstrates that the Titanic's sinking was in many ways entirely avoidable.

(retrieved from Amazon Mon, 30 Sep 2013 13:49:23 -0400)

An examination of the maiden voyage of the Titantic in 1912 which resulted in the deaths of 1522 people. Includes information from the Woods Hole expedition in 1985 which found and photographed the wreckage.
