Book - 1999
Rate this:
From the building of the gigantic twin gantries for Titanic and her sister ship Olympic, through keel-laying, framing, plating, launching, construction and installation of the vast engines, and the final fitting out of the elegant liner, the high-quality photographs and informative text and captions capture the almost superhuman achievement of the thousands of skilled men involved in this truly titanic task. Also covering the fatal maiden voyage, the collision and rescue attempts, and concluding with vivid descriptions of how the dreadful news was received in Belfast, this - the first major book to focus on the construction of the ship - is a unique addition to the Titanic legend.
