"Iceberg right ahead!" yelled Frederick Fleet, a crewmember aboard the Titanic. The ship had only seconds to spare. TitanicÂ’s officers steered the ship to the left as quickly as they could to avoid a head-on collision. But they werenÂ’t fast enough. The right side of the ship struck the side of the ice mountain floating in the north Atlantic. The fate of the TitanicÂ—and its 1,317 passengers and 885 crewmembersÂ—had been sealed. TitanicÂ’s Fatal Voyage tells the devastating story of how the gigantic and supposedly unsinkable ship was swallowed by the sea on its maiden voyage. Readers will learn about the ocean linerÂ’s journey in vivid detail, as well as incredible tales of courage and survival. The fascinating content and large-format color images, maps, and fact boxes bring the TitanicÂ’s tragic story to life. TitanicÂ’s Fatal Voyage is part of BearportÂ’s Titanica series.
