Book description

The definitive chronology of the Titanic's final hours, offering readers a real-time experience of one of the greatest dramas of the 20th century.

At 2.20am on April 15, 1912, the Titanic was plunging 12,000 feet to the ocean floor.

The giant ship had broken into two pieces – her streamlined bow speeding to the bottom of the sea, her stern sinking slower, breaking up as it went. Machinery, coal, crystal goblets, pianos and jewellery all tumbled through the dark water. Hundreds of passengers and crew remained trapped below decks – hundreds more would perish on the surface.

Titanic: Minute by Minute is the story of the sinking, told in fascinating detail – in the style that made D-Day: Minute by Minute and Hitler's Last Day: Minute by Minute bestsellers.

Passenger Marion Wright would always remember how lovely the ship had been when it set out on its voyage, “except for the smell of new paint”; Bandleader Wallace Hartley’s body would be found with his tips from the night before in his pocket; lookout Fred Fleet would end his days as a newspaper seller in Southampton enduring such comments as “Hello Fred, seen any icebergs lately?”

This is the definitive chronology of the Titanic’s final hours, offering readers a real-time experience of one of the greatest dramas of the 20th century.
