Description:
This book was first published in 1912, just two short months after the sinking of the TITANIC. The text represents Beesley's attempt not just to record the events of the sinking but to set the record straight. He captures both the majesty and the tragedy of this legendary voyage -- the view from the lifeboat as well as that from the deck. Full of nautical detail and written with a hair-raising clarity, this book is a spellbinding tale of that fateful night -- one you won't soon forget.

Book cover: Europe in the Middle AgesEurope in the Middle Ages
by - Oxford University Press
The history of Mediaeval Europe is so vast a subject that the attempt to deal with it in a small compass must entail either severe compression or what may appear reckless omission. I venture to claim for the present book a pioneer path of 'omission'.
