The Night Lives oneBook - 1986
Three decades after his landmark work A Night to Remember, Walter Lord revisits the Titanic Years after A Night to Remember stoked the fires of public interest in the doomed RMS Titanic, the clamor for details about April 14, 1912, has not abated. As die-hard professional and amateur historians--"rivet counters," they are called--puzzle over minute details of the ship's last hours, a wealth of facts and myth have emerged. Revisiting the subject more than thirty years after his first study, Lord dives into this harrowing story, whose power to intrigue has only grown a century after the Titanic's sinking. Was the ship really christened before setting sail on its maiden voyage? What song did the band play as water spilled over the ship's bow? How did the ship's wireless operators fail so badly, and why did the nearby Californian, just ten miles away when the Titanic struck the iceberg, not come to the rescue?
