Titanic Calling: Wireless Communications during the Great Disaster

Edited by Michael Hughes and Katherine Bosworth

Published to mark the centenary of the sinking, this book tells the story of the Titanic from a new angle: the role of wireless in the disaster. Drawing on the Marconi Archives in the Bodleian Library, the most extensive record of wireless communications, the book recounts the fateful events of April 1912 from the first messages warning of ice to the arrival of the survivors in New York. Titanic Calling brings to life the voices of the individuals in this drama, retelling this legendary story as it was first heard.
