Description

The Loss of the S.S. Titantic is Lawrence Beesley's compelling first-person account of the tragic sinking of the R.M.S. Titanic on its maiden voyage in April 1912. Published amid the continued media frenzy a scant nine weeks following the tragedy, The Loss of the S.S. Titanic draws on Beesley's experience as a second-class passenger and survivor, and, because of its rich detail and unique perspective, continues to be considered to be one of the most authoritative books about the disaster.

The sinking of the Titanic in the frigid waters of the north Atlantic in the early hours of April 15, 1912, is arguably the most famous maritime disaster of modern history, and one that continues to capture popular imagination a century later.
