- European History , The 20th Century – The Present
Did the Edwardian era sink with the Titanic?
In April 1912, six notable people were among the first class passengers aboard the Titanic: Lucy Leslie, Countess of Rothes; son of the British Empire, Tommy Andrews; American captain of industry John Thayer and his son Jack; Jewish-American immigrant Ida Straus; and American model/movie star Dorothy Gibson. Author Gareth Russell peers through the portholes of these first-class travelers to immerse us in a time of unprecedented change in British and American history.
Masterful in its superb grasp of the forces of history and lavishly illustrated with color and black-and-white photographs, this absorbing and authoritative account of the Titanic’s life and death is destined to become the definitive book on the subject.
