It boasted libraries, palm tress, swimming pools, a 50-phone switchboard and was nearly as tall as the Eiffel Tower.

No, she's not a skyscraper, she's the Titanic! To commemorate the centenary of the sinking of the White Star Liner RMS Titanic in 2012, Titanic, A Very Peculiar History delves into the human stories of both crew and passengers and the incredible feats of engineering and design involved in her construction.

The book also takes a look at events that occurred once the ship was wrecked, from discovering what dead passengers had tried to take with them to assessing the likelihood of us ever being able to raise the wreck for more study.

Featuring a colour insert with a guide to the many decks on board, letters from the liner's passengers and crew and and an in-depth look at the events that led to the ship's unpredictable sinking, Titanic, A Very Peculiar History is a great all-round look at the quirky, scary and amazing facts and stories surrounding the Titanic's conception, construction and maiden voyage.
