George Behe has a new book available through lulu.com. Its title is "On Board RMS Titanic," and it's described as follows:
quote:

A collection of letters, postcards and memoirs written by passengers and crewmen before, during and after the Titanic's tragic maiden voyage.
Details appear here.​

Just in time for the blizzard, George Behe's book came. I can guarantee you, it will give the reader many hours of pleasure.

The book, which runs about 550 pages takes the reader through each day of the voyage. The amount of rare material, not published in books before is amazing and greatly adds to Titanic's story.

So far, I've only seen it available through Lulu.com but I have feeling, due to it's excellent content, it will be found in other venues.

I received my copy today, and I'll second Mike P.'s comments. This is a terrific book, presenting only the words of those who were there, with no commentary or analysis (something that I, for one, think is a VERY good thing). It's the first book in at least several years that I'd call a "must have" for those interested in what happened on board that night.

Bravo!

I received my copy a few days ago and I noticed in the "other books by this author" page that Mr. Behe has another book out this year "Carpathia and The Titanic". I looked for it on Lulu.com but could not find it. Does anyone know when this book is going to be released?

George Behe's new book, "On Board RMS Titanic" is a triumph. I recommend it to people interested in the people of Titanic--their own words, written usually to loved ones while on board and just following the disaster. He includes an addendum describing what circumstances led to their being aboard. It's a wonderful read, and a great resource, complete with index.

I have just received a copy of 'On Board RMS Titanic'.

I have to say this is one of the best Titanic books I have ever purchased. It makes for compulsive reading. I must congratulate George Behe on tracking down so many invaluable documents and editing them so thoughtfully.

Quite simply the best Titanic book published for years.

I'd like to obtain this book. This title isn't on Lulu any longer. It is listed as coming soon on Amazon. Anyone know if that's the case? Thanks!

September 1 in the UK and December 1 in the US, right? I'm hoping that's the case - Amazon seems to be very good about their projected publishing date. It might be worth it to email the publisher.

I'm curious as to whether it'll pop up in ebook format somewhere, or whether it's the type of book that should be published and read in a paper format. I'm looking forward to it either way.
