not been the quick actions taken by Capt. Rostron of the Cunarder

over a dozen works of history and his latest is the story of that
fateful night plus a complete biography of her career from

a trooper in World War One and her sinking from a torpedo on July
17, 1918 off the coast of Ireland. Illustrated. Softcover. 158 pages.
