FROM THE TITANIC
The Definitive Oral History
By Nick Barratt
On April 15, 1912, RMS Titanic sank with 1,517 people, leaving the rest clinging to debris in the frozen waters of the North Atlantic awaiting rescue. Historian Nick Barratt gathers tales of incredible folly and unimaginable courage––the aspirations of the owners, the efforts of the crew and, of course, the eyewitness accounts from those lucky enough to have survived.
In narrating the definitive history of the famous ship, Barratt draws from never-before-seen archive material and eyewitness accounts by participants at every stage of Titanic’s life––the background and construction of the Titanic, the maiden voyage of the Titanic and the aftermath.
Long lost voices bring new life from the words of those who designed, built and sailed the ship, those heartbreaking moments on the fateful Sunday night when families were torn apart, contemporary accounts from the resulting inquiry and to articles from newspapers and journals, many of which took a morbid interest in the tragedy and its effects.
Lost Voices cements the legend of the Titanic into our imagination. 320 pages, illustrated. Hardcover.
