Titanic: First Accounts (Penguin Classics Deluxe Edition) Reviews

With its detailed stories from survivors of the disaster, Titanic, First Accounts is hugely engaging and adroitly debunks some of the event's great myths. (Nearer, My God, to Thee wasn't actually the last song played by the ship's band.) The eyewitness testimonies are equal parts illuminating and haunting, revealing intimate conversations with surviving passengers who didn't fully grasp the scope of the unfolding devastation until it was too late. - Entertainment Weekly
