" a definitive account"Los Angeles Times

"Sometimes amazingly priggish, at others unwittingly funny, the colonel was also possessed of a fierce
tenacity, a sturdy kind of dignity and a feeling of controlled outrage at what he thought was gross
negligence."Philadelphia Inquirer

Archibald Gracie was probably among the last to leave the sinking Titanic on that cold April
night in 1912, one of the most traumatic events in maritime history. In this unique account, he describes
his personal experiences and remarkable escape from death in the icy waters of the Atlantic, painting a
vivid picture of what it was like on board the Titanic in its final hours.

Tracking down other survivors for their stories and attending court hearings to obtain the official record,
Colonel Gracie filled in the details of his account, struggling to complete it in spite of illness. Largely
due to the effects of his ordeal and exposure in the frigid Atlantic, he finally succumbed on December
4, 1912. His book was published in 1913 to universal acclaim and remains one of the most vivid and
first-hand accounts of the disaster.
