Summary

<p>“An astonishing work.”<br />—Julian Fellowes, Creator and Executive Producer of “Downton Abbey”</p><p>“A book well worthy of marking the centenary of the crystal-clear night when the immense ship slid to her terrible doom.”<br />—Simon Winchester, <em>New York Times</em> bestselling author of <em>The Professor and the Madman</em></p><p>It has been one hundred years since the sinking of the passenger liner Titanic in the North Atlantic, yet worldwide fascination with the epic tragedy remains as strong as ever. With <em>Voyagers of the Titanic</em>, Richard Davenport-Hines gives us a magnificent history of the people intimately connected with the infamous ship—from deal-makers and industry giants, like J.P. Morgan, who built and operated it; to Molly Brown, John Jacob Astor IV, and other glittering aristocrats who occupied its first class cabins; to the men and women traveling below decks hoping to find a better life in America. Commemorating the centennial anniversary of the great disaster, <em>Voyagers of the Titanic</em> offers a fascinating, uniquely original view of one of the most momentous catastrophes of the 20th century.<br /></p&gt
