When she set sail from Southampton on her maiden voyage to New York on 10 April 1912, RMS Titanic, the pride of the White Star fleet, was the largest ocean liner in the world. Deemed 'practically unsinkable' because of her double-bottomed hull and watertight compartments, she carried over 2,000 passengers and crew, although only sufficient lifeboats for just over half that number.

Four days out of Southampton, on the night of 14 April, she struck an iceberg in the North Atlantic and sank within a matter of hours; around 1,500 lives were lost. Logan Marshall interviewed the survivors in the immediate aftermath of the disaster and in this book he recorded the facts as they were known. Well established as part of the canon of Titanic literature, this book is a must-have for anyone with an interest in the ship and her sorrowful fate.

Only a few weeks after the sinking of the Titanic, Marshall Logan was the first author to publish an account of the tragic event. His book contains plenty of information that has become forgotten over the last hundred years and provides a very detailed insight into the shipwreck. Most remarkable about Logan's work is its focus on personal stories of the Titanic's passengers.
