Robert Ballard, one of the discoverers of the sunken "Titanic", retells the story of that great calamity and goes on to describe the sinking of the "Empress of Ireland", which sank with more loss of life than the "Titanic"; the "Lusitania", whose sinking helped propel the U.S. into WWI; the "Britannic", the sister ship of the "Titanic" which was sunk by German submarines; and the "Andrea Doria", sunk off the coast of Massachusetts in 1956. Marschall is the preeminent maritime artist who was a consultant on the movie "Titanic". Full-color.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Gr. 4^-7. Best known for the undersea discovery of the Titanic, Ballard introduces readers to that shipwreck and four others of the twentieth century: the Empress of Ireland, the Lusitania, the Britannic, and the Andrea Doria, which collided with the Stockholm. Each chapter describes the exploration of one of the wrecks and offers information about the ship's origins, amenities, importance, and why it sank. In each chapter, one passenger is profiled in a sidebar, giving readers a personal story and a photograph to bring the experience more sharply into focus. Exceptionally detailed dramatic paintings by Ken Marschall, show the ships as they appeared on the water, while sinking, and beneath the sea. Many period photos, posters, and sketches set the scene; photographs of undersea exploration show the ships and their artifacts as they appear today. The large, attractive format and informative text combine to make this an appealing book on a subject that continues to fascinate young people. Add this to the Titanic bibliography in the March 15 issue of Booklist. --Carolyn Phelan"
