A Night to Remember - The Classic Account of the Final Hours of the Titanic
First published in 1955, A Night to Remember remains the definitive, classic tale of the sinking of the Titanic.
Walter Lord interviewed more than sixty survivors before commiting their searingly vivid recollecitons to his minute-by-minute account of the Titanic's fatal collision and the experiences of both passengers and crew under pressure of the unthinkable: the swift plummet into icy waters of the ship promised to never sink.
Whith an introduction by Nathaniel Philbrick, bestselling author of In The Heart of the Sea and Sea of Glory, this fiftieth-anniversary edition of Walter Lord's classic brings the drama of that night back to life. As Philbrick contcludes in his introduction: "From first to last, A Night to Remember is about the people who briefly inhabited the Titnaic, and never again will an author have the opportunity to speak to so many of them. In this most essential way, Lord's book can never be outdone, making A Night to Remember the ultimate survivors' tale.
