A Night to Remember Reviews


A stunning book, incomparably the best on its subject * New York Times *
Walter single-handedly revived interest in the Titanic...an electrifying book * John Maxtone-Graham, maritime historian and author *
Absolutely gripping and unputdownable * David McCullough, Pulitzer Prize-winning author *

Devotion, gallantry...Benjamin Guggenheim changing to evening clothes to meet
death; Mrs. Isador Straus clinging to her husband, refusing to get in a lifeboat; Arthur Ryerson giving his life belt to his wife's maid...A book to remember

* Chicago Tribune *
Seamless and skilful...it's clear why this is many a researcher's Titanic bible * Entertainment Weekly *
Enthralling from the first word to the last * The Atlantic Monthly *
Moving and extremely well-documented * Oxford Mail *

About Walter Lord


A graduate of Princeton University and Yale Law, Walter Lord served in England with the American intelligence service during the Second World War. His interest in the Titanic dates back to 1926 when, at ten years old, he persuaded his family to cross the Atlantic on the Olympic, sister ship to the doomed ocean liner. Lord was renowned for his knowledge of the Titanic catastrophe, serving as consultant to director James Cameron during the filming of Titanic. A Night to Remember was published in 1955 and has never been out of print. Walter Lord died in 2002.
