DescriptionJust before midnight on April 14, 1912, the ocean liner Titanic struck an iceberg. Less than three hours later, she lay at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean, having taken with her more than 1,500 of the roughly 2,200 people on board. Even now, a century later, no other ship in history has attracted so much attention, stirred up such powerful emotion, or accumulated as many legends. "Unsinkable" provides a fresh look at the Titanic's incredible story. Following the great ship from her conception to her fateful collision to the ambitious attempts to salvage her right up to the present day, Daniel Allen Butler draws on thirty years of research to explore the tragedy and its aftermath in remarkable depth and detail. The result is a must-read for anyone interested in the Titanic.

Reviews for Unsinkable
One of my favorite resources on Titanic!
"Unsinkable" is a fulfilling read on the subject of the RMS Titanic. It is packed with much history, and tells it in an interesting and desirable way. I learned many new things about the ship itself and the people who became a part of the grand ship immortally, before, during, and after the awful wreck.
"It is a story of heroism, self-sacrifice, and noblesse-oblige, nobility, and prejudice; class and egalitarianism. No writer of fiction, no matter how gifted, would dare present the story of the Titanic as a product of the imagination: it would be too unbelievable. Even as fact it often stretches the bounds of credibility---yet it is all true." (Page IX, Unsinkable)
(As a side-note, I absolutely loved Butler's use of adding a Bible scripture pertaining the subject at the start of every chapter.)
Aside from Walter Lord's books, this is the next book in line that I have found which contains all the information you need to know on the Titanic. Definitely a preferred favorite.
"The story of the Titanic began long before her sailing day, her launching, her building.... She was, during her brief life, the culmination of technology, social, and economic trends that had begun more than a half century before her creation." (Page 221, Unsinkable) by Tarissa
