The Classic Account Of The Final Hours Of The Titanic
First published in 1955, 'A Night To Remember' remains a completely riveting account of the Titanic's fatal collision and the behaviour of the passengers and crew, both noble and ignominious. Some sacrificed their lives, while others fought like animals for their own survival. Wives beseeched husbands to join them in lifeboats; gentlemen went taut-lipped to their deaths in full evening dress; and hundreds of steerage passengers, trapped below decks, sought help in vain.
Available for the first time in trade paperback and with a new introduction for the 50th anniversary edition by Nathaniel Philbrick, author of 'In the Heart Of The Sea' and 'Sea Of Glory', Walter Lord's classic minute-by-minute re-creation is as vivid now as it was upon first publication fifty years ago.
