Tragedy at Sea

The Sinking of the Titanic

by David Long, Stefano Tambellini
On April 10, 1912, the RMS Titanic set sail from Southampton on her maiden voyage to New York. This “Ship of Dreams” was the largest and most luxurious ocean liner in the world. She was proclaimed unsinkable. But four days later, when the ship struck an iceberg, the loss of Titanic and more than 1,500 passengers would become one of the most infamous maritime disasters in history. 

This fact-filled retelling of its meticulous construction and doomed first and only voyage brings the ship’s tragic tale to life.
