The Titanic was the largest passenger liner in the world at the time of her launch. She sank during her maiden voyage on 15 April 1912 after colliding with an iceberg. More than 1,500 passangers died as a result, but the disaster led to an overhaul of the regulatory and operational failures that caused the high death toll. This collection includes a firsthand account of the sinking, facts about the tragedy, and reactions to the news.
