The sinking of the Titanic on its maiden voyage in 1912 is one of the most dramatic stories in maritime history. The largest passenger steamship in the world, fitted with more advanced safety features than any of her rivals, she was proclaimed to be virtually unsinkable. Just how and why the Titanic foundered on such a beautiful April evening is the subject of this fascinating book.

Author Rupert Matthews has written a highly readable account of the story of the Titanic, from the building of the liner to the excitement surrounding her launch, the slow unfolding of an unimaginable tragedy, the investigations, and finally the discovery of the wreck. He also explores the evidence behind the stories of heroism and cowardice related by survivors, and investigates the many theories surrounding the great ship's tragic loss.
