Review

Best Titanic Narrative Since - Lord's "Night to Remember!"
If you want to know the true 1912 saga of the Sinking of the Titanic --- this book is for you! Rossignol, a professional journalist by trade, has researched the news reports that came out in the newspapers of 1912. --- Bruce M. Caplan, author of the best-selling book, The Sinking of the Titanic, now in its 18th edition.

Excellent Book! Easy to Read, Direct, Concise, and to the Point.
Rossignol has presented us with an outstanding research of the press accounts of the time. I enjoyed this book for the trip back in time. As a former history teacher, I was especially interested in the variety of accurate and inaccurate reporting immediately after the RMS Titanic tragedy.

I also enjoyed the photos and newsprint article of the time but would have liked it better if the articles were readable. Nevertheless, kudos to Mr. Rossignol for a well-researched analysis of the Titanic reporting.---Chris Gregory
Iceberg did not jump out and attack Titanic!
"As I was rereading Titanic 1912, my husband had the news channel on TV. I irony was not lost on me as I read about the 'misunderstandings' in the initial news coverage. Or the errors mixed with the conjured and fabricated news stories. Some things never change! Even armchair quarterbacks still believe the notion that somehow the rich were favored for escaping the sinking ship while the lower classes died. They must have seen the movie instead of reading the lists of those who went down with the ship. As usual, Ken Rossignol went to original sources to garner information for this book. Thank goodness he took H.L. Mencken's advice that a cynic is a man who, when he smells flowers, looks around for a coffin. Ken looks around and carefully checks out all of the 'coffins' he finds. There is a lot of information in this book and I highly recommend it for those whose minds aren't already made up. Contrary to some reports in contemporary publications, the iceberg did not jump out and attack the Titanic!!! "- Karin Tillotson

From the Author

Titanic 1912 - The story of the Sinking of the Titanic from thenews stories of the days and weeks after the disaster.
This book brings to life some of the very best writing aboutthe story of the Titanic, from the newspapers of the day, both in England andAmerica. While the first reporting of the story was tragically wrong - therewere reports that the Titanic was under tow to Halifax and all the passengershad been safely transferred to theVirginian, those reports were quickly corrected. The truth came rushing throughto London and New York, racing through the airwavescarrying the wireless reports.
One of the first to get the news of the Titanic sinking"by the head" was a youngMarconi operator sitting in a wireless station high atop Wanamaker's DepartmentStore in New York City.  That young manwas but 21 years old, but his name wouldforever be connected with the news. He was David Sarnoff, who went on to foundthe NBC radio and then television networks.
As a reporter and editor for over twenty years, checking thefacts and digging for details has become second nature. Going back into theactual news stories of 1912 and finding gems of writing as well as reportingwas a pleasure. Bringing them to life now and comparing them to modern news coverage and offering my views onthem is the purpose of this book. Included here are many of the great imagesand graphics produced by newspapers of the day. They worked on tight deadlinesand in many cases produced great work in a short period of time. 
Did you know the story of the Unsinkable Molly Brown, whotook command of her lifeboat and saved the lives of all aboard?
Did you know the Titanic was on fire from the time the shipleft port?
