Just before midnight on April 14, 1912, the ocean liner Titanic struck an iceberg. Less than three hours later, she lay at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean, having taken with her more than 1,500 of the roughly 2,200 people on board. Even now, a century later, no other ship in history has attracted so much attention, stirred up such powerful emotion, or accumulated as many legends.

“Unsinkable” provides a fresh look at the Titanic's incredible story. Following the great ship from her conception to her fateful collision to the ambitious attempts to salvage her right up to the present day, Daniel Allen Butler draws on thirty years of research to explore the tragedy and its aftermath in remarkable depth and detail. The result is a must-read for anyone interested in the Titanic.

Editorial Reviews

“Butler has included not only the latest theories and findings, but also an examination of why we still care so much today. Butler is a military historian and a renowned authority on maritime affairs; no one less knowledgeable could shed new light on a story we all thought we knew.”Midwest Book Review, June 2012“Any collection interested in the Titanic’s history will relish this revision.”Curled Up with a Good Book“Unsinkable is a must-read for fans of the Titanic and buffs of plain old history. Butler’s attention to detail and obvious research provides a brief glimpse into a bygone era. Titanic is ultimately a cautionary tale of the hubris of man, and Unsinkable an entertaining read.”Portland Book Review, 11/3/12“Butler details everything you would ever want to know about the ship, and the book is just fascinating…Unsinkable is full of interesting information and is a good read in general.
