Description
Presented in a handsome edition with a cutaway view of the doomed ship wrapping around the cover, this is a collection of firsthand accounts of the Titanic disaster, presenting testimonies by survivors and eyewitnesses like Margaret Brown, Archibald Gracie, Carlos F. Hurd, and Lawrence Beesley, the author's grandfather. Tim Maltin, also the author of 101 Things You Thought You Knew About the Titanic ... But Didn't, has researched the Titanic for 25 years and notes here how he owes his existence to a chance decision by Beesley.

"First Accounts is hugely engaging and adroitly debunks some of the event's great myths. ('Nearer, My God, to Thee' wasn't actually the last song played by the ship's band.) The eyewitness testimonies are equal parts illuminating and haunting, revealing intimate conversations with surviving passengers who didn't fully grasp the scope of the unfolding devastation until it was too late."Entertainment Weekly
