"I
cannot imagine any condition which would cause a ship to founder. I
cannot conceive of any vital disaster happening to this vessel.” –
Captain Edward J. Smith

Just before midnight on April 14, 1912,
the RMS Titanic, the largest ship in the world, hit an iceberg, starting
a chain of events that would ultimately make it history’s most famous,
and notorious, ship. In the over 100 years since it sank on its maiden
voyage, the Titanic has been the subject of endless fascination, as
evidenced by the efforts to find its final resting spot, the museums
full of its objects, and the countless books, documentaries, and movies
made about the doomed ocean liner. Thanks to the dramatization of the
Titanic’s sinking and the undying interest in the story, millions of
people are familiar with various aspects of the ship’s demise, and the
nearly 1,500 people who died in the North Atlantic in the early morning
hours of April 15, 1912. The sinking of the ship is still nearly as
controversial now as it was over 100 years ago, and the drama is just as
compelling.

The Titanic was neither the first nor last big ship
to sink, so it’s clear that much of its appeal stems from the nature of
ship itself. Indeed, the Titanic stands out not just for its end but
for its beginning, specifically the fact that it was the most luxurious
passenger ship ever built at the time. In addition to the time it took
to come up with the design, the giant ship took a full three years to
build, and no effort or cost was spared to outfit the Titanic in the
most lavish ways. Given that the Titanic was over 100 feet tall, nearly
900 feet long, and over 90 feet wide, it’s obvious that those who built
her and provided all of its famous amenities had plenty of work to do.
The massive ship was carrying thousands of passengers and crew members,
each with their own experiences on board, and the various amenities
offered among the different classes of passengers ensured that life on
some decks of the ship was quite different than life on others.

Almost
everyone is familiar with what happened to the Titanic during its
maiden voyage and the tragedy that followed, but the construction of the
Titanic is often overlooked, despite being an amazing story itself, one
that combined comfort and raw power with the world’s foremost
technological advances. Nonetheless, the seeds of the Titanic’s
destruction were sown even before it left for its first and last
journey.

Similarly, the drama involved with the sinking of the
Titanic often obscures the important aftermath of the disaster,
particularly the several investigations conducted on both sides of the
Atlantic that sought to figure out not only why the Titanic sank but
future changes that could be made in order to protect ships and
passengers in the future. In fact, the course of the investigations was
interesting in itself, especially since the British and Americans
reached wildly different conclusions about what went wrong and led to
the ship’s demise.

The Titanic examines the entire history and
legacy of the ship, from its construction to its sinking, as well as the
investigations and changes that followed, the discovery of the wreck in
1985, and even the current events surrounding the ship. Along the way,
life aboard the Titanic is analyzed through passengers’ accounts, as are
the tales of survival and death that continue to resonate. Along with
pictures of important people, places, and events, you will learn about
the Titanic like never before, in no time at all.

Near, far, wherever you are, your deals will go on Boz
Yep... I thought I'll have it. Oh.. it seems I downloaded it from amazon Oct 2015 it tells me, free of course.
I got an ebook and read it of the musicians who continued playing as it sunk.
Apparently the ones in the lifeboats could still hear it as they moved away from the Titanic and credited them for being able to keep people from panicking and credited them as heroes.
I thought otherwise but still dont know what to make of it.
What do you all think of those musicians?

He is a friend of mine and atill playing regularly. Gets the girls going.
Great deal, I like anything to do with the Titanic. Thanks Boz
After 100 years under the sea divers were amazed to find that the Titanic's pool was still full.
Got this last time. Shame they never did get to rebuilding the replica
By Dickens, you're good, Boz!
Nice, cheers Boz

Watched a documentary just the other day citing a hold fire and warped bulkhead doors as being the real reason behind its rapid sinking. It was quite interesting, apparently the boiler crew had been tackling a fire in a boiler room for days and it was still on the go when it left for America.

No doubt there's an alien conspiracy version out there too Lol.
thanks for sharing
