Summary

Everyone knows how the story of RMS Titanicended, but few know how it began. Now, for the first time, that remarkable history has been traced back to its start-with the 1907 decision to build her in the first place. From there we go into the shipyard, where 4,000 tradesmen-joiners, fitters, electricians, plumbers, welders, riveters, and more-turned dreams into reality. Profusely illustrated with blueprints, cross-sections, and haunting archival photographs, this extraordinary record of human endeavor and, ultimately, human fallibility, adds a fascinating new dimension to the story of the world's most famous, fated ship.
