The Last Night of a Small Town

John Welshman

  • The fascinating story of twelve passengers on board the Titanic - on the centenary of her sinking
  • Offers a minute-by-minute account of the doomed liner's last hours through a representative cross-section of those who sailed in her: men and women, old and young, passengers and crew, First Class to Third Class
  • Includes a rich cast of eye-witnesses: a ship's captain, a second officer, a wireless operator, a stewardess, an amateur military historian, a governess, a teacher, a domestic servant, a mother, and three children
  • Tells the story of where they were from, what happened to them on the night of the sinking, and what happened to those who survived in the years afterwards
