    One thought on “The Titanic: Disaster of a Century”

    1. This book does not chronicle the disaster from the point of view of the event itself rather, it concentrates on the Senate hearings that occurred after the fact The book is filled with details about passengers and crew members, procedures on ships at the time, and the results of the disaster However, it also contains quite a bit of information about the members of Congress who were involved in the investigation, which, to some extent, seemed a bit extraneous The author also became very philosoph [...]

    2. The classic study of the Titanic disaster and the hearings that took place in the United States following the tremendous loss of life Highly recommended to those interested in studying what happened, and why.

    3. This year is the centennial of the sinking of the Titanic, and books and articles are proliferating to mark this event I have had only a superficial knowledge of the facts regarding Titanic and but minimal interest in its story, having not even seen the blockbuster movie But I was led to read this particular 1986 book primarily because its author, Wyn Wade, and his widow Barbara who has updated and republished the book this year, were high school classmates and friends of my wife, Carla, and we [...]

    4. Titanic Disaster of the Century by Wyn Craig Wade is, as the publisher notes, little than a slightly updated re release of The Titanic End of a Dream Mr Wade passed away in 2006.A lot has obviously changed in terms of what has come to be known about RMS Titanic over the decades since the original End of a Dream was first published But you wouldn t know it by listening to Disaster of the Century and comparing the two.In my review of The Titanic Death of a Dream, I gave Wyn Craig Wade four stars [...]

    5. Wyn Craig Wade s The Titanic Disaster of the Century previously titled The Titanic End of a Dream is a fascinating and in depth analysis of the loss of the RMS Titanic Uniquely structured, Wade focuses on the United Sates Senate inquiry and unfolds the disaster as it was learned through the newspaper accounts and witness testimony, which gives an air of mystery and suspense to the book In fact, it becomes quite engrossing to see how the sinking was investigated and how the public, the press, and [...]

    6. This author believes that there is enough drama in this story without making anything up or creating conversations Borrowing heavily from the US Senate investigation immediately after the disaster, he creates a scene and places it in the context of the world in 1912 The Gilded Age Although the account is based entirely on fact and testament, a very real look at human nature and a feel for the moments of the scenerio come forth clearly.

    7. Brilliant Focuses on the Senate hearings following the disaster There is as much courtroom procedural drama here as there is the dramatic events of the sinking the book, originally published in the 70s has a new foreword that places titanic in context along with modern disasters This was added after the death of the author There is also a revised epilogue added after the discovery of the wreck in 1985 I am a Titanic geek, and this is the definitive book about the shipwreck.

    8. An excellent, fast paced overview, despite originally being written than a century ago You can see where James Cameron got his ideas.

    9. Very well researched extensive look into what happened on the Titanic, it s aftermath and the effects on the world.

    10. Covers the sinking from various angles and incorporates different theories of how the ship sank Marvelously prepared.

    11. this is a complete story of the titanic From the start of the journey to the wreckage under the sea many years later.

    12. I listened to the audio and thoroughly enjoyed the narrator Nice addition to the many books I ve read since this focused on the Senate hearings.
