This book is slated for release on the 110th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic, and comes from the same team of historians and authors that brought you On A Sea of Glass: The Life & Loss of the RMS Titanic in 2012 for the centennial anniversary of the disaster.

This book comes from the same team that brought you On A Sea of Glass: The Life & Loss of the RMS Titanic.

Recreating Titanic is a book you will not want to miss. It is designed to take all of the research and writing that we have done on the Olympic-class ships over many years — which is spread across a number of books, original articles, monograms, and even real-time sinking animations that we have worked on — and present it in one succinct and informative place. The book has a primary narrative punctuated by numerous informative boxes covering oft-asked questions or frequently-misunderstood details regarding the liners.

We also feel a commitment to retelling the stories of Titanic and her sisters with as much accuracy as possible.

Those of you who are familiar with our work over the years know that we have been at this for a very long time, and that we work with a larger team of experts in a variety of fields that touch upon everything connected with these liners. We take pains to make our works stand out as authoritative and as accurate as we can make them. We also feel a commitment to retelling the stories of Titanic and her sisters with as much accuracy as possible. Indeed, while today’s media and would-be historians offer many sensational headlines and dangle juicy conspiracy theories to sell copy or to book commercial space in their next documentary, we work just as hard to tell the stories without distortion.

A note regarding international shipping fees: Copies of Recreating Titanic will be large and rather heavy books. While shipping fees within the United States are typically reasonable, we have learned over the years that international shipping fees can be quite high. These fees can be quite a surprise to the uninitiated who are not accustomed to the actual costs of international shipping; please be assured that we work hard to balance shipping speeds and times with safe packaging to help make sure that your copies arrive safely and in good time, and that copies are shipped as close to cost as we can estimate in advance. International customers should plan in advance for these fees, or consider purchasing standard, unsigned copies online from a retailer with lower shipping fees.
