"Why does the sinking of the Titanic hold such fascination for us? Many reasons have been advanced for the continuing fascination of this epic tragedy, but none, we think, can contribute as much to an understanding of it as the four accounts collected in this volume. All four authors were survivors, and each presents the catastrophe from his own viewpoint; the icy waters, the cries of the drowning, the confusion and the heroism, are given an intensely personal immediacy. This volume contains, complete and unabridged, 'The Loss of the S.S. Titanic,' by Lawrence Beesley, and 'The Truth about the Titanic,' by Col. Archibald Gracie. Both are full-length books published soon after the disaster: Each has become extremely rare today. The third story in this volume, 'Titanic,' was written by one of the only officers to survive the catastrophe, Commander Lightoller. It includes the story of the 'white-washing' inquiries into the Titanic's safety measures. The last section is a dramatic tale by the Titanic's surviving wireless operator, Harold Bride."--Back cover of 2018 printing
The loss of the S.S. Titanic : its story and its lessons by Lawrence Beesley( Book )

A chilling, first-person account of the sinking of the Titanic, first published by Houghton Mifflin in 1912, just two months after the tragedy, & resurrected here as part of the archives of Houghton Mifflin. Annotation. First published in 1912, just two short months after the sinking of the TITANIC, this hauntingly immediate account opens with Lawrence Beesley's story of arriving onshore and soon after walking through the doors of Messrs. Houghton and Mifflin to tell his tale. THE LOSS OF THE S.S. TITANIC represents Beesley's attempt not just to record the events of the sinking but to set the record straight. In so doing, he captures both the majesty and the tragedy of this legendary voyage -- the view from the lifeboat as well as that from the deck. Full of wonderful nautical detail and written with a hair-raising clarity, THE LOSS OF THE S.S. TITANIC is an altogether spellbinding tale of that fateful night -- one you won't soon forget
