The Loss of the S.S. Titanic:
Its Story and Its Lessons (1912)

The Loss of the S.S. Titanic

First published in 1912, just two short months after the sinking of the Titanic, this haunting first-person account opens with Lawrence Beesley's story of arriving onshore and, soon after, walking through the doors of Messrs. Houghton and Mifflin to tell his tale. The Loss of the S.S. Titanic represents Beesley's attempt not just to record the events of the sinking but to set the record straight. In so doing, he captures both the majesty and the tragedy of this legendary voyage - the view from the lifeboat as well as that from the deck. Full of nautical detail and written with hair-raising clarity, The Loss of the S.S. Titanic is an altogether spellbinding tale of that fateful night - one you'll never forget.
