From the Author:

Titanic 1912 - The story of the Sinking of the Titanic from the news stories of the days and weeks after the disaster.
This book brings to life some of the very best writing about the story of the Titanic, from the newspapers of the day, both in England and America. While the first reporting of the story was tragically wrong - there were reports that the Titanic was under tow to Halifax and all the passengers had been safely transferred to the Virginian, those reports were quickly corrected. The truth came rushing through to London and New York, racing through the airwaves carrying the wireless reports.
One of the first to get the news of the Titanic sinking "by the head" was a young Marconi operator sitting in a wireless station high atop Wanamaker's Department Store in New York City.  That young man was but 21 years old, but his name would forever be connected with the news. He was David Sarnoff, who went on to found the NBC radio and then television networks.
As a reporter and editor for over twenty years, checking the facts and digging for details has become second nature. Going back into the actual news stories of 1912 and finding gems of writing as well as reporting was a pleasure. Bringing them to life now and comparing them to modern news coverage and offering my views on them is the purpose of this book. Included here are many of the great images and graphics produced by newspapers of the day. They worked on tight deadlines and in many cases produced great work in a short period of time. 
Did you know the story of the Unsinkable Molly Brown, who took command of her lifeboat and saved the lives of all aboard?

Did you know the Titanic was on fire from the time the ship left port?Please enjoy this book! - Ken Rossignol
