Description
The tragic loss of life, the individual acts of heroism or cowardice, the hubris of modern man—these are the themes most often exemplified in Titanic literature and dramatizations. Hugh Brewster knows them well, having edited, published, and written books about the ship and her fate for more than 25 years; here, however he focuses on the disproportionate impact of the disaster on the highest levels of British and American society.

"Full of delicious details, from champagne flutes to the careless luxe of furs and satin, this is a spell-binding story, fresh, original and totally absorbing."—Marian Fowler

"An impressive amount of information, often directly pulling from firsthand accounts. The author vividly renders the collision, the sinking, the chilling wail of unseen swimmers calling from the cold water and the shipwreck's aftermath."—Kirkus Reviews
