Synopsis: This is the tragic story of the Titanic, the biggest and most luxurious ocean liner the world had ever seen, which sank on her maiden voyage in April 1912. Beautiful, double-page illustrations with amazing cross-sections and cutaway details explain the construction and mechanical details of this gigantic ship and reveal life on board for passengers and crew. Each new illustration reveals different aspects of life in the early 20th century, and the text highlights hidden details for you to spot. As you follow the pictorial story of this world-famous liner, you will discover how she was built and equipped, what kind of passengers and crew she carried, and what facilities she offered on board. You will also find out how she struck an iceberg and met with disaster, why she sank so quickly, how many people were saved, and how many lives were lost. You can compare the differences between the Titanic's passengers -- from the first-class millionaires to the third-class emigrants -- and find out how they dressed, where they ate and slept, and what they did to amuse themselves during the voyage. You can also take a closer look at some of the passengers and crew, and follow their different fates from the exciting start of the voyage to its tragic end.
About the Author: Steve Noon has worked as an illustrator in many fields. The superb detail and technical brilliance of his illustration, combined with his long-standing interest in history, brought him commissions for two previous Dorling Kindersley books: Open House and A Street Through Time. The latter won Longman's prestigious History Book of the Year Prize in the History Today Awards 2000. Dr. Eric Kentley is currently assistant director at the Design Museum, London. Previously he was head of ship technology at the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich. During research for the museum's Wreck of the Titanic exhibition in 1995, he took part in an expedition to the site of the wreck and dived down to the Titanic wreck in a submersible. Eric Kentley is also the author of Dorling Kindersley's Explore the Titanic and Eyewitness Boat.
