A Night To Remember

by Walter Lord


She was the world's biggest-ever ship.  A luxurious miracle of twentieth-century technology, the Titanic was equipped with the most ingenious safety devices of the time.  Yet on a moonlit night in 1912, the "unsinkable" Titantic raced across the glassy Atlantic on her maiden voyage, with only twenty lifeboats for 2,207 passengers.  A Night To Remember is the gut-wrenching, minute-by minute account of her fatal collision with an iceberg and how the resulting tragedy brought out the best and worst in human nature.  Some gave their lives for others, some fought like animals for survival.  Wives beseeched husbands to join them in the boats; gentlemen went taut-lipped to their deaths in full evening dress; hundreds of steerage passengers, trapped belowdecks. Sought help in vain. A Night To Remember From the first distress flares to the struggles of those left adrift for hours in freezing waters, here is the legendary disaster relived by the few who survived and can never forget the many who did not.
