About this item

One hundred years ago, a ship thought to be indestructible suffered the ill fate to strike an iceberg during its maiden voyage across the North Atlantic. The unthinkable occurred, and the Titanic went to the bottom. What happened on that cold and inky night has haunted and entranced us ever since.

Goodness knows, there have been other disasters-far too many disasters. But as the initial reception to Titanic, the most popular movie ever, just now being re-released in 3-D, proves: There has never been a disaster that so captivates the human imagination as that of the sinking of the Titanic. Now, on the 100th anniversary of "the night to remember", LIFE revisits this awesome human drama. Heroism is involved, and hubris. Romance and recrimination. A thousand stories spiraling outward-and all of them told in this commemorative LIFE book, in words and pictures.

This oversized, deluxe book is visually splendid and exciting on every page. It includes archival photography, past reporting in LIFE and the modern-day explorations of Robert Ballard and others that inspired the James Cameron film. The book will include a special section on the new 3-D treatment of the classic movie, just now being released. We return to first-person accounts, and the words of the survivors are brought to life-with many small stories from steerage told as well as the large, well-known drama from above decks. The book will also include interstitial chapters to lend context, such as a history of famous shipwrecks, and where the Titanic fits in the grand picture.

At the end of the story, the fact we entered with is inescapable: The Titanic tragedy is the one we care about, and need to revisit.

I have many books that have been written about "The Titanic", but this is one of the best that I have seen. This book is a perfect for teachers to use when they study this tragic accident, because it makes you feel like you were right there when it happened.

I bought this for my daughter as a Christmas gift, and she LOVES it. The book is softcover, and has a lot of photos of life on Titanic, taken by a photographer who disembarked at England. I plan to buy one of these for myself! Another great LIFE book.
