Summary

The RMS Titanic sailed from Southampton en route for New York on her maiden voyage with 2,228 passengers and crew on board. On 14 April, 1912, at twenty minutes before midnight, sailing at almost full speed, she struck an iceberg and sank in just two and a half hours. Over 1500 lives were lost.
This is the story of a great tragedy described by the surviving passengers, officers, and crew who were on board that night. Firsthand accounts help to explain why so few of the passengers took to the lifeboats and later describe the miraculous survival of those forced to jump into the icy waters of the North Atlantic. The story of the Titanic is ultimately one of simple human loss and these laconic Edwardian voices bring it alive.

Informative

I enjoyed this and thought it was well researched, though some of the archive voices were quite faint and therefore difficult to hear.

Outstanding

I've been intrigued by the Titanic since I was a child in the 1960s. Of course I've read many of the published works regarding the sinking of this great vessel however these pale in comparison to hearing the actual passengers / survivors tell the story in their own words. Hearing the inflections in their voice as they speak of the event brings it to life in an almost ghostly manner.
