In the chilly night of April 15, 1912, the luxury passenger liner Titanic slipped quietly beneath the waves of the North Atlantic Ocean. How could this engineering marvel, renowned for its safe and ultramodern design, have been fatally damaged by the light touch of a passing iceberg? "The Sinking of the Titanic" describes the Titanic disaster in the words of eyewitnesses and the articles of contemporary historians and engineers.
"Because of the even-handed presentation, the title makes a strong and lasting impression. The writings are well chosen. A thoughtful and well-delineated addition."
