Titanic's Last Hours
From the moment the iceberg was spotted, at 11:40 P.M. on April 14, 1912, the Titanic’s fate was sealed. Its 2,200 passengers and crew, in the course of two momentous hours, would meet their destiny in the icy, black waters of the North Atlantic.
Titanic’s Last Hours: The Facts is a riveting account of the last two hours the supposedly unsinkable ship was afloat. Beginning at 11:40 P.M., the book relives the events set in motion after the brush with the iceberg and culminates with the sinking of the ship at 2:20 A.M. The fascinating moment-by-moment action along with large-format color images, maps, and fact boxes bring the nail-biting tension that passengers and crew must have faced in those final hours fully to life.

School Library Journal Review of Titanica
Young Titanic fans will reach for these six volumes that cover almost every facet of the ship and its sinking. In Last Hours, for example, several diagrams and cutaways illuminate the various inner workings and levels of the boat and how exactly the iceberg damaged the vessel. Kids will learn of the ship’s construction, the passengers (many of whom were rich and famous), the fatal collision, and even related ghosts and mysterious hauntings. In all of the books, the language is clear, and there are ample brightly colored drawings and photographs to complement the text. VERDICT: A well-crafted presentation of a timeless topic. Expect a high demand from Titanic aficionados.
