Content

The Titanic was the greatest ocean liner ever built and the news of its sinking 5 days into its maiden voyage, shocked the world. 
Captivated by the tragedy, audiences turned to the trusted Daily Telegraph hoping to find answers to questions of how the "unsinkable ship" could have ever gone down.
Misinformation and erroneous reports of what exactly happened to the Titanic were numerous, and it was up to the Telegraph reporters to determine the truth.
Focused entirely on media clippings and reporting from the time of the tragedy, Titanic is a ripped-from-the-headlines account of the sinking of the world's largest ship.

  •     This book is hard to put down as it seemed to take you back to that fateful week after the sinking of the Titanic. In today's age of instant information, to read how the leading newspaper reported on the tragedy was so fascinating. This is a book for anyone who has seen the Titanic display, the Titanic movie or even the old movie, "The Night to Remember". You will enjoy it.
  •     It was hard to put this book down. Reading the newspaper accounts really made me feel like I was finding out about it for the first time. The author's sidebar explanations helped clarify some of the inevitable newspaper inaccuracies and were such a valuable addition to the unfolding story of the tragedy. Definitely recommend reading this book to all on the eve of the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic.
  •     This was a riveting book; I could hardly put it down. This book took a very unique approach. It's a "you-are-there" seven-day account of the Titanic's sinking and its aftermath, examined and experienced through the largest circulating newspaper of the time, the "London Daily Telegraph." You can feel this newspaper's struggle to separate fact from fiction. Their job was made even more difficult because false reports abounded and they had no access to survivors. The explanatory notes in starred boxes from a variety of printed and Internet sources were interesting and helpful. I'll be recommending this book to whomever will listen. Great job Mr. Hines.
  •     An invigorating read! I whole-heartedly recommend this one to historical Titanic buffs. It leads you through the prominent newspapers during the days following the Titanic's sinking. The headlines & stories vary from each other, contradicting each other when no truth was known about the Titanic's fate. Stephen Hines has craftily pieced together the running theme of the newspapers that tragic week in April 1912. I especially enjoyed seeing what reporters in New York were saying in contrast with London, both cities being greatly affected by the ship's fate. This is a fantastic book and I learned so much by reading it!
  •     This fresh perspective on the sinking of the Titanic is surprisingly relevant to journalism today, especially as news crews try their best to bring timely information from the scene of an accident to the rest of the world. It is interesting to see what the readers at that time were concerned about, and ironic to see the mistakes in communication, magnified by distance and time. This is a must-have for anyone researching the event, being valuable in its historic collection of articles, helpful explanatory notes, and thorough index. It would also be a great read for anyone interested in a first hand look into the culture and values of England and America in the early 1900s, the history of newspaper journalism, or (of course) the sinking of the Titanic.
  •     I was really disapointed with this book. I couldn't finish it - which is a first for me. With all 5 star reviews I was really looking forward to getting into it, but just couldn't.I didn't feel like I was there getting the news as it came in, I just felt confused. I actually got confused about what were newspaper articles and what was input from the author. I found a few snippets of information interesting, but overall it was a let down.
