I have a new review for you! Titanic: Iceberg Ahead will release in March from Pen and Sword Publishers, and if you enjoy history, then you are going to want to read this one!
Review of Titanic: Iceberg Ahead
The Titanic was a disaster of epic proportions, one that would have lasting effects for many years to come. With the “Unsinkable” ship ready to sail, many flocked to its decks, hoping for better lives, celebrating honeymoons, looking for better employment, or just taking pleasure trips. When the Titanic struck an iceberg and sank on 14 April 1912 – no one could believe it. The iceberg should not have caused the amount of damage, but there were several design flaws, ones that would come back to haunt the massive ocean liner.
Through this book, we get a glimpse inside the ship itself, the people aboard the vessel, and many of their thoughts and impressions on the great liner. What can never be erased is the massive loss of life, due to the fact that there were not enough lifeboats on board for everyone and the lives that were torn apart by the sinking of this ship.
This heartbreaking book will keep you captured from page one, giving you a glimpse into the hopes and dreams that were dashed for many that night.
At the end of the book, there is an accounting for several of the passengers and crew. It will share whether they lived or died, and even providing some background on them. These stories bring home the humanness of it all, the real live people who had their lives cut short, dreams lost, and for some, the inability to get over the guilt of having survived the sinking.
I highly recommend this book! It was amazing, and I truly enjoyed it!

Amazing review, I absolutely love history and have been fascinated by the Titanic for years, even more so since I visited the Titanic Museum in Cobh! I’ve got a book about the Titanic too, but this one sounds great, so I will definitely give it a go!
This book was unique in many ways, and I felt gave a better realization on those who were aboard the ship. Definitely worth a read!
