The Night Lives On explores many of the riddles that have puzzled even the experts, including: how well built was the 'unsinkable' Titanic? Did the Captain really know how to handle the ship? Why were six wireless warnings ignored? Who was responsible for there being so few lifeboats? What was the band really playing? And why weren't the Titanic's rockets answered? Walter Lord's compelling account of the sinking of the Titanic, A Night to Remember, was hailed as 'a stunning book, incomparably the best on its subject'. This is the gripping sequel.
