It boasted libraries, palm trees, swimming pools, a 50-phone switchboard and was nearly as tall as the Eiffel Tower… No, she's not a skyscraper, she's the Titanic! Marking the centenary of the sinking of the White Star Liner RMS Titanic in 1912, 'Titanic, A Very Peculiar History' delves into the human stories of both crew and passengers and the incredible feats of engineering and design involved in the ship's construction. The ebook also takes a look at events that occurred once the ship was wrecked, from discovering what dead passengers had tried to take with them to assessing the likelihood of us ever being able to raise the wreck for more study. Featuring letters from the liner's passengers and crew and a taste of the superstitions and creepy coincidences that surround the ship's sinking, it's a great all-round look at the incredible facts and stories at the heart of the Titanic's conception, construction and maiden voyage.
