The name Titanichas become synonymous with catastrophe, the story of this luxurious liner legendary. Wrecked after colliding with an iceberg on her maiden voyage, the loss of around 1,500 lives among her passengers and crew has gone down in history as one of the most emotive and tragic disasters in history. In this evocative collection of photographs the authors of Titanic The Ship Magnificenttell her full story, from the shipyards of Harland & Wolff and its early vessels, with the backdrop of the great race to build the biggest and best passenger liner, to the frenzy of excitement surrounding her launch. Looking at her officers and crew, as well as her stops at Cherbourg and Queenstown - including some special, rare photographs - the book follows the story to its inevitable conclusion, considering the lifeboats, the presence of the Carpathiaand the aftermath of the disaster.
STEVE HALL and BRUCE BEVERIDGE set up the Titanic Research & Modeling Association (TRMA) .
