Even before she sailed in 1912 Titanic was making headlines as the world's largest ship, symbolising the confidence and certainties of her era. Built at Harland & Wolff's massive shipyard in Belfast, Titanic took four years, and the expertise of thousands of skilled men, to complete. This new edition of Michael McCaughan's acclaimed book, The Birth of the Titanic (1998), is a visual chronicle of that superhuman achievement set against the backdrop of an age of industry, entrepreneurship and political tensions. Written and compiled by internationally recognised Titanic expert Michael McCaughan, it captures the spirit and vision of the people who built the vast leviathan and the stories of those who sailed on her, describing in detail the construction and launch of the ship as well as the disaster and its aftermath and giving fresh insights into why Titanic continues to fascinate and inspire.
