Titanic: Ship of Dreams by Timothy PD Turner

Titanic: Ship of Dreams’ is a comprehensive examination of arguably the most famous ship of all time. It begins with the construction of RMS Titanic and her interior design which display the opulence and ingenuity of her designers.

The book compares the different classes of passenger and their accommodation on board.

The infamous iceberg collision is detailed and the rescue efforts are chronicled, highlighting the devastation of that fateful night in April 1912. The subsequent inquiries held on both sides of the Atlantic are investigated and the recommendations made at the time are examined.

For over a century the Titanic disaster has fascinated the world’s historians, writers, film makers and general public ever since she sank with the loss of over 1500 lives in April 1912.

This copiously illustrated book considers much more than its title suggests, beginning with an brief overview of the White Star Line’s fleet.

Next, Titanic’s construction, layout, opulent furnishings, passenger experiences and the central personalities are introduced.

Important aspects of her maiden voyage are revisited; the first ice warnings, lookouts, striking the iceberg, sinking, partial lifeboat evacuation and the lessons learned from the Inquiries held in Britain and America.

After touching on the ‘Titanic’s Curse’, forewarnings, and myths of 1912, it moves to Dr Robert Ballard’s dramatic discovery and exploration of her in 1985. This reawakened interest, and in 1997, James Cameron's film “Titanic” proved an outstanding success.
