Summary: The sinking of the Titanic is one of the most tragic events in seafaring history, but its construction remains one of the greatest achievements of human engineering. Here is the first detailed account of the creation of this "grand hotel of the high seas"-the amazing story of how the ship was designed and constructed, and why, nearly 100 years later, its legend continues to fascinate us. Perhaps it is because everything about the Titanic was absolutely gigantic. To this day, it is difficult to comprehend the impact of its sheer size. In the year 1910, a resident of Belfast provided a haunting image of the giant luxury liner under construction that reinforces the wonder of it all... Book jacket.
