This book is highly recommended as an introduction to those who have never had the opportunity to read about the sinking of the Titanic. Four eyewitness survivors accounts: Lawrence Beasley, a 2nd class passenger; Archibald Gracie, a first class passenger; C. H. Lightoller, the Titanic’s 2nd officer and Harold Bride, the Marconi wireless operator. Mr Beasley’s is especially good with fresh recollections as he was encouraged by Houghton-Mifflin Publishers to write about his experiences only a few days after he arrived safely in Boston. Softback.
