Nightmare on the Titanic

Nightmare on the Titanic

by William Caper

Hardcover(Library Binding)



The night air was clear as the Titanic sliced through the calm sea. Suddenly, the huge ocean liner scraped against an iceberg. At first, most people on board didn't notice any damage. Then more and more water poured in. The crew tried to signal for help while passengers climbed into lifeboats. All the while, the ship's band continued to play as the front of the giant ship dipped deeper and deeper into the sea.

Before the night was over, more than 1,500 people would lose their lives. Afterward, many would ask what went wrong. How could the world's largest and best-built ship sink into the cold waters of the Atlantic Ocean?
