Ward’s book, which became a Sunday Times bestseller, inspired a Discovery Channel documentary, Titanic: The Aftermath, which tells the story of Jock’s short but daring life, not unlike that of Jack Dawson in the film, T itanic. Jock looked pale but smiled and said, “we’re just going to give them a tune to cheer things up a bit. I’m a former national newspaper editor and magazine publisher – and the grandson of Jock Hume, a violinist in the Titanic’s band.To enable personalised advertising (like interest-based ads), we may share your data with our marketing and advertising partners using cookies and other technologies. They were of a level which would be very hard to replicate today as there's been a loss of skills over the years. I’m not saying that this is completely fiction, as quite a few of the stories can be proven, as there are survivor’s tales of their experience in the frigid water; plus the author gives a biography of many people mentioned in the book.

This book cites numerous stories of premonitions of survivors, or people who felt a foreboding uneasiness about the trip and didn't embark - even a dog, no less. On 14 April 1912, less than a week into a transatlantic trip from Southampton to New York, the largest luxury cruise liner in the world struck an iceberg off the coast of Labrador, causing the hull to buckle.

This novel takes a wee while to get going, but the night of the disaster scenes are very well done and you may need tissues! This book list brings together 17 must-reads about this infamous ship that will bring your Titanic lessons to life. This book was a treasure trove of information that I did not know and I managed to gobble this book up within a short few hours.

The RMS Titanic had two sister ships, RMS Olympic and HMHS Britannic, and belonged to the Olympic class of White Star ocean liners. Published for the first time over 50 years ago, author Walter Lord weaves a tale of the human element that played a major role during the sinking of the Titanic. Ok so I love anything Titanic related, I’m a big fan of anything nautical and I grew up with the 1997 film and had a massive crush on Leo… I mean, who didn’t right? With a groundbreaking visual approach and clear, child-friendly text, the DK Eyewitness series has been a trusted favourite for parents, teachers, and school-age children since 1985.Report of the United States Senate Committee to Investigate the Causes of the Loss of the White Star Liner Titanic" and "The British Wreck Commissioner's Report on the Loss of the Titanic". The Stanley Docks are impressive for their history and construction and our Superior Dockside Rooms offer stunning views of the docks. What I found most eerie were the number of stories written about a giant ocean liner and her tragic ending BEFORE Titanic sailed.
