Description

Love history? Know your stuff with History in an Hour.

The sinking of the Titanic 100 years ago in 1912, and the subsequent deaths of over 1,500 passengers, sent shock waves around the world. Never before or since has a maritime disaster in a time of peace had such an impact.

Titanic: History in an Hour is an entertaining and well researched account of the events leading up to the sinking of this ‘unsinkable’ ship, providing an fascinating commentary on the pressures of the White Star Line, the importance of class to Titanic’s unfortunate passengers and the legacy of the disaster in Britain and America.

Titanic: History in an Hour is a gripping and accessible account.

A tight and exciting little book

Almost everyone on the planet knows the Titanic story, yet I found this retelling of the tale of this ill-fated vessel fantastic. I am a fan of the History in an Hour format and find it works very well with this story. The account of the moments leading up to the fatal encounter of ship and iceberg is especially spine-tingling and impressive. Part of the credit of course has to go to Mr. Jonathan Keeble, the narrator.
