A Night to Remember by Roy Baker( Visual )

23 editions published between 1958 and 2012 in English and Japanese and held by 1,208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is 1912, and the White Star Line's new ship - the 'unsinkable' Titanic - is making its maiden voyage across the Atlantic from Southhampton to New York City. Unfortunately, the night of April 14-15, 1912 proves to be a night in which man's arrogant overconfidence in his technological creations was shaken to its core, as the legendary ship collides with an iceberg in the North Atlantic. The much-touted watertight compartment system that supposedly rendered it 'unsinkable' was never designed to cope with such extensive damage, and the Titanic is doomed. Focusing on the accounts of most of the real people who sailed on the ship, it centers largely on the experiences of the ship's 2nd officer, C.H. Lightholler. With these accounts come frightening revelations about the ship - not only are there way too few lifeboats, but people are loaded into them according to their class - First before Steerage

The Bismarck was the fabled German battleship of World War II. Traces the "life" of the Bismarck from its launching (courtesy of newsreel footage) through its many battles and narrow escapes, concluding with its far-from-inevitable sinking in the Spring of 1941. The story concentrates on the human element, specifically a British intelligence captain, who has lost his family in the London blitz and thus has a personal reason for seeing the Bismarck blasted from the sea. The captain's tireless efforts are abetted by the love and support of a female naval officer

The Soviet Union and the United States set off thermonuclear test bombs simultaneously, causing the Earth to shift from its normal orbit into a direct course toward the Sun. All over England, temperatures are on the rise, girls in bikinis are everywhere, and wonderful special-effects mists are blanketing the Thames River.

He orders science reporter Bill Maguire and columnist Peter Stenning to dig for information. When Peter begins a romance with Met Centre secretary Jeannie Craig, he learns from her certain clues that there has indeed been a cover-up. As water becomes scarce, the British government takes emergency measures to control hysteria, rampant looting, and rioting.
