From the dust jacket- "When Walter Lord was ten years old he persuaded his family to go abroad on the Olympic, sister ship to the Titanic, so he could learn more about the lost liner. In the 28 years since, he has carried on his research with unflagging devotion. He has tracked down, met and corresponded with scores of survivors, rescuers, relatives of victims, steamship officials, and others intimately connected with the disaster."
