A tight and exciting little book

Almost everyone on the planet knows the Titanic story, yet I found this retelling of the tale of this ill-fated vessel fantastic. I am a fan of the History in an Hour format and find it works very well with this story. The account of the moments leading up to the fatal encounter of ship and iceberg is especially spine-tingling and impressive. Part of the credit of course has to go to Mr. Jonathan Keeble, the narrator.
