Recollections and Revelations! One-half century later, the catastrophic ramming of the MS Stockholm into the Italian luxury liner Andrea Doria in July 1956 is relived in this candid, heartrending account. Author and survivor Pierette Domenica Simpson shares the human and technical aspects of what has become known at the "greatest sea rescue in history" and provides the general public, for the first time, with truth about the error that led to the collision.

Pierette Domenica Simpson was born in northern Italy and was immigrating to the United States with her grandparents on the fatal night of the collision. She now lives in Michigan, where she teaches languages and writes for several periodicals.Review:
It is difficult to constrain the fascinating and intricate story of the Andrea Doria tragedy within the pages of a book. But this has been done, thanks to Pierette Simpson. If you like mysteries, do not read this book, because she was there, and she'll tell you the untold truth, putting an end to the Andrea Doria mystery. A praiseworthy achievement -- Maurizio Eliseo ""Naval inspector, author, professor, historian""
