Introduction by George Behe,
with cover artwork by Robert Lloyd.

Note: This listing is for signed & numbered limited edition copies, which can not be obtained through other retailers.

One hundred years after the sinking of the Titanic, the history of that ship was commemorated in this all new and incredibly comprehensive volume. It is now in its third edition.

Co-authored with Tad Fitch and Bill Wormstedt, two well-known and highly respected researchers of the disaster, On A Sea of Glass reveals the history of the Titanic as you have never read it before. From the personal stories, to the most accurate timeline of events during the sinking of the ship yet compiled, to the common misconceptions – nothing is beyond this volume’s scope.

The narrative portion of the book reads chronologically, taking the reader from the ship’s initial concept, through construction, launch, fitting out, trials, and her disastrous maiden voyage. It is backed up by the team’s many years of research into the subject; the collective knowledge of other researchers such as Sam Halpern, George Behe, Mike Poirier, Bruce Beveridge, and many others has also been tapped to bring you one of the most accurate and informative texts ever written on the subject. More than just a dry dissertation of facts, this volume’s text engages and engrosses the reader, placing you aboard the ship in way you may never have thought possible before…

This volume is also packed with photos and illustrations, including a full-color section. Finally, a comprehensive series of appendices tackle a series of ‘hot’, oft-debated topics and considers each dispassionately, including these:

  • Did ship’s officers shoot passengers, or did one commit suicide?
  • Was the Titanic switched with her similar sister ship Olympic?
  • Was Titanic‘s construction of a poor nature, contributing to her loss?
  • What became of Captain Smith and Thomas Andrews?
  • How did the ship’s final five minutes play out, and how did she break up, from a technical perspective?
  • Was the ship trying to make New York on Tuesday night rather than Wednesday morning?

All of these questions, and many more, are answered within this volume. Finally, a series of comprehensive endnotes provides a scholarly-level of citation back to original source material, and also expands information presented in the text.

AWARDS AND REVIEWS:

  • “A chance to experience Titanic‘s story like never before.” – Shipping Today and Yesterday.
