The Wider Story

by Patrick Mylon

What more can be said about the ill-fated RMS Titanic, a ship that has achieved almost mythological status throughout the world? In truth, not a lot. But what about her sister ship, the railway stations and the boat trains that served her, the vessels that sent ice warnings and those that responded to her distress calls?

Here Patrick Mylon explores many of the lesserknown aspects of Titanic’s legacy, telling the wider story that developed around the disaster.

He examines the other ships involved and the ports of Queenstown, Cherbourg and Southampton. He also looks at the boat trains that brought her passengers to her. He even looks at the sheet music which sprung up after Titanic’ untimely demise, and also examines the memorials to those who lost their lives in the tragedy Using rare and previously unpublished images from his collection of White Star memorabilia, he places fresh emphasis on the vessels, events and locations Titanic encountered during her short life.


This is yet another good book on this ever popular subject, backed up with good photographs and illustrations. I would highly recommend it to our readers.
