About this deal

All of our bedrooms have a nautical personality with streamlined Art Deco furniture, hanging ship’s lanterns, riveted panels and maritime artwork. I am really obsessed with anything and everything to do with the Titanic and I try to read every book I can on the subject.

All are chronicled in a new chapter which, with a section of completely up-to-date color photographs, makes this edition a must.In the form of 882 ½ intriguing and thought-provoking questions, the book raises queries that many readers might have encountered.

There were about a thousand on board Britannic when she foundered, many of them wounded, but remarkably only 28 people died – the warm water of the Aegean and Britannic’s proximity to the Greek island of Kea saving their lives. As someone who loves stories about horrible omens and other supernatural occurrences that predict disaster, I was incredibly intrigued by this book and happy that my request had been approved.
