sank. Since that fateful night, stories about the sinking have become
legendary - how the band played to
the end, how lifeboats were lowered half-empty - but amongst the films,
novels and academic arguments, only those who were there can
separate truth from fiction.
After the sinking, inquiries into the loss of 1,517 lives (out of

witnesses are transformed into characters in a much bigger
story, and the events are described from different perspectives of people in
every part of the ship, from a stoker in the boiler room escaping his

passengers trying to buy their way onto lifeboats.
Capturing the disbelief, the chaos and the terror of the disaster, this
unique book brings to life the tragedy through the voices of those who
