The TITANIC was the largest ocean liner ever built. Shipbuilders hailed its state-of-the-art design. First-class passengers enjoyed extravagant luxuries onboard. But on April 15, 1912, five days after departing on its maiden voyage, disaster struck. Lookout Frederick Fleet spotted an iceberg in the darkness ahead. The crew tried desperately to turn the monstrous ship, but the iceberg tore through its side, sealing the TITANIC's fate. Two hours later, the unsinkable ship disappeared into the Atlantic Ocean, taking fifteen hundred passengers with it. One hundred years later, the TITANIC and its tragic story still draw attention. Author Michael D. Cole examines the harrowing journey of this historic shipwreck.
