Tragedy at sea : the sinking of the Titanic / David Long ; illustrated by Stefano Tambellini.

Long, David, 1961- (author.). Tambellini, Stefano, (illustrator.).


April 1912: the Titanic, the so called Ship of Dreams, sets sail with over 2,000 men, women and children on board. It was a historic moment and should have been one of the safest, most luxurious journeys to America. But when the ship hit an iceberg in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean its maiden voyage became a nightmare and the Titanic quickly sank taking her crew and passengers with her. In this gripping and fact-filled retelling David Long brings to life the history of the "unsinkable" Titanic, its creation and its doomed maiden voyage.
