To commemorate the centennial anniversary of the Titanic’s maiden voyage, we have a book that will add an important new dimension to our understanding of this enduringly fascinating and tragic story. Shadow of the Titanic is a collection of stories from those who survived the tragedy.
Although we think we know the story of the famously luxurious and supposedly unsinkable ship, very little has been written about what happened to the survivors after the tragedy. How did they cope in the aftermath of this horrific event? How did they come to remember that night, a disaster that has been likened to the destruction of a small town?
Author and award-winning journalist Andrew Wilson draws on a wealth of previously unpublished letters, memoirs, and diaries as well as interviews with the survivors’ family members to bring life to the colourful voices of those who lived to tell the tale. Read an excerpt of the book today.
