RMS Titanic was the largest passenger steamship in the world when she set off on her maiden voyage from Southampton on April 10th 1912.
Four days into the trip on April 14th she struck an iceberg and sank, resulting in the deaths of 1,517 people in one of the biggest peacetime maritime disasters in history.
This special 100th anniversary book not only charts her fateful journey but also describes the media frenzy about her famous victims, the legends surrounding the sinking, the resulting changes to maritime law, and the discovery of the wreck - all factors that have contributed to our long-held fascination with the ill-fated ocean liner.
