16th April 2012
April 2012 marks the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the RMS Titanic, and Pen and Sword has lots to offer for those who want to find out more about this tragic story.
Designed as the technological marvel of her age, RMS Titanic claimed to be the largest, strongest, safest ship of the early 20th Century; a triumph of centuries of Great Britain's unrivalled shipbuilding expertise. Yet nothing could be further from the truth.
First published in hardback ten years ago, Daniel Allen Butler's "Unsinkable" is one of the best selling books on the Titanic, selling over 100,000 copies worldwide. This highly readable step-by-step account of what happened, is now available in paperback for the first time.
For those seeking a more controversial approach, Who Sank The Titanic? by Robert Strange, is unique book which is already attracting media interest. Robert is a forensic crime investigator and has uncovered new documents relating to the sinking of the Titanic which are likely to change the epic tale as we know it. Most shocking of all is the trail of evidence Robert has found relating to the cost cutting and the role of key figures such as Winston Churchill, in diminishing the safety of this ill-fated ship.
For modellers and others interested in the concept and design of the Titanic, we have two great books that can help illustrate how the Titanic looked and give guidance on how to recreate her classic lines. New to the Shipcraft series is Titanic and Her Sisters Olympic and Britannic, whilst RMS Titanic: a Modelmaker's Manual is a must for anyone interested in the design of this ill-fated ship.
