        OUTLINE:

        It was hailed as "unsinkable", the biggest ship in the world, the ultimate in seafaring luxury. Yet within five days of setting off from Southampton on its maiden voyage, Titanic had sunk to the bottom of the sea with the loss of over 1,500 lives. A century on, the fate of the Titanic remains the worst disaster in seafaring history.

        Titanic: The Legend of the Unsinkable Ship provides a unique and compelling insight into the life of the magnificent vessel by charting the greatest of all maritime disasters from the initial concept and the excitement of her first voyage to the dramatic collision and sinking, culminating with recent investigations and salvage missions.

        Complete with over 100 photographs, which take you from the glamorous ballrooms and restaurants down tot he submerged grandeur of the wreck, this book also contains 12 facsimilues of rare Titanic documents including:

        • An original blueprint from the construction of the Titanic
        • Baggage claim ticket
        • A memo issued by the US Navy giving reports of heavy ice on the night of the tragedy
        • Telegrams sent to and from the Titanic as she sank
        • A postcard sent from Queenstown by a passenger who died when the ship sank
        • The statement of the Second Officer Herbert Stone who watched from the Californian as the Titanic sank
