Memories of the Maiden Voyage
By George Behe
Life on board the world's most famous ship, in the words of the passengers themselves
The first book in which Titanic's passengers and crew are permitted to tell the story of the disaster entirely in their own words, via letters, postcards, diary entries, and memoirs written before, during, and immediately after the maiden voyage itself. Many of the pre-sailing documents represent the last communications that these people had with loved ones at home. These letters and postcards give an unparalleled description of the events that occurred during the five days that Titanic was at sea, and the communications written by survivors after the sinking describe the horror of the disaster itself and the heartbreak they experienced at the loss of loved ones.
