It took 4,000 men to create it, 23 tons of animal grease to slide it into the ocean, 100,000 men and women to wave bon voyage, but only a single distinct wrong move to tear the Titanic apart, sinking it in to the pages of history. Only 700 suceeded."Told by means of captivating prose and chilling first-hand accounts, Don Brown take the pieces of the broken Titanic and offers it such a vivid shape that you'd swear you've never heard the story before. Lifeboats had been launched half-full; women had been forced to leave their husbands and sons behind; and even those that produced it out alive were forever haunted, constantly wondering"why me? On a cold moonless night in April of 1912, 2,000 passengers--both the uber-rich enjoying a luxury cruise along with the dirt-poor hoping to locate a new life in America--struggled to survive.
