‘There is no danger that Titanic will sink. The boat is unsinkable and nothing but inconvenience will be suffered by the passengers.’
— Phillip Franklin, White Star Line Vice-President
On April 15th, 1912, Titanic, the world’s largest passenger ship, sank after colliding with an iceberg, claiming more than 1,500 lives. Walter Lord’s classic bestselling history of the voyage, the wreck and the aftermath is a tour de force of detailed investigation and the upstairs/downstairs divide. A Night to Remember provides a vivid, gripping and deeply personal account of the ‘unsinkable’ Titanic’s descent. Includes a new prologue by Julian Fellowes.
