Ok so I love anything Titanic related, I’m a big fan of anything nautical and I grew up with the 1997 film and had a massive crush on Leo… I mean, who didn’t right? Each book offers a unique and insightful perspective on one of the most tragic events in history, and the collection as a whole promises to be a valuable addition to any bookshelf. Packed with incredible statistics and facts about Titanic and written in easy-to-grasp text, this history book for children will transport young readers back to the year 1912.

From being built and setting sail to sinking fast and saving lives, theTitanic is explored and explained in fascinating detail with intricate cutaway scenes and cross-sections.Of course, we also went for modern, convenient and contemporary with our fittings and amenities, as you would only expect from one of the best hotels in Liverpool. He clung on to a wooden crate which kept him afloat long enough to find an overturned collapsible lifeboat. You will find yourself drifting through our Presidential Suites at first, while you absorb the space and light which these magnificent hotel suites possess.

The tragic sinking of the luxury liner spawned many movies and books retelling the incidents that led to the fateful disaster. Part of the 100 plus Eyewitness Books series published by Dorling Kindersley (DK), the book covers the history and subsequent investigation, discovery, and exploration of the doomed ocean liner- the Titanic.The lucid and clear writing also helps break down the journalistic practices of the early 20th century. Her maiden voyage from England and Ireland would be the showstopper of the Atlantic, but the ship was also riddled with omens. The book is complete with featurettes on the making of James Cameron’s blockbuster film “Titanic”, as well as the real-life accounts of passengers and crew.

There were about a thousand on board Britannic when she foundered, many of them wounded, but remarkably only 28 people died – the warm water of the Aegean and Britannic’s proximity to the Greek island of Kea saving their lives. This book cites numerous stories of premonitions of survivors, or people who felt a foreboding uneasiness about the trip and didn't embark - even a dog, no less. We’re aligned with the UN Sustainable Development Goals, including SDG 4 which aims to “ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all” by 2030. The 400-page account of those who survived the tragic sinking of the largest ocean liner of that time and the heroes and villains of that infamous night have been laid out for the reader to judge.

There were theories that there were doomed items on board - the hope diamond and an Egyptian artifact with a Mummy's curse. JAMES BANCROFT has produced more than 100 books and articles, the subjects of which reflect his varied interests.

I am a fan of books that recounts historical events, I've just finished Erik Larson The Devil in the White City, and I'm wondering if there is a similar book on the Titanic? He took out advertisements inviting survivors to get in touch, interviewing sixty passengers and crew. Presents and dissects one of the most tragic events of the 20th Century in a dramatic insight into the Titanic's construction and fit-out, to its maiden voyage.The two-part book keeps the reader on edge throughout as they are taken on a journey of tragedy, courage and sacrifice. Born in 1887 in Argentina, the eldest child of Irish immigrants, at the age of 21 she became the breadwinner for her widowed mother and five siblings when she commenced a career as a stewardess and nurse on some of the most famous ocean going vessels of the day. It may be that it forced people to look again at the class structure because it became clear that not only did wealth and prestige mean a better lifestyle but also that the ‘top’ levels of society were considered too important to be lost in a crisis. The Stanley Docks are impressive for their history and construction and our Superior Dockside Rooms offer stunning views of the docks.
