Hmm ? not the titanic, but there was a good book on the laurentic which is quite a cool story, sank off Ireland bringing 1200 gold bars to America during the war. Can’t remember the name of the book though so that’s not much use ? ? ?
The Wreck of the Titan: Or, Futility by Morgan Roberson. It was written 14 years before the sinking of the Titanic and fortold the entire thing.
Raise the Titanic which I believe was the first book in Clive Cussler’s long running Dirk Pitt series.
David Dyer wrote a book based on the Titanic and the Californian called The Midnight Watch. It is on my TBR pile but my sister read and loved it.
A Night to Remember
I have an Illustrated History of the Titanic.
I also have a book about The Wreck of The Edmund Fitzgerald. By Frederick Stonehouse.
I loved this book.
Walter Lord’s book, A Night to Remember, is the classic here and the basis for the movie of the same name.
Also, the Night Lives on by Walter Lord
I have this one
If you like shipwreck books, try Clive Cussler. They are based on actual dives he did with NUMA. My dad used to dive with him.
No greater love is about the titanic
Women and Children first by Gill Paul, historical fiction
Richard Peck’s Amanda/Miranda is partially set on the Titanic.
The Dressmaker by Kate Alcott
If you like audiobooks, ‘That Fateful Night’ is amazing. It contains actual voice recordings from survivors of the Titanic.
