Collection of radio messages related to the Titanic disaster. Good so far as it goes; I would have liked more technical background, though (e.g. it explains why the Carpathia's operator was calling Titanic -- because Cape Cod was on a different frequency -- which I'd not seen anywhere else, but that's as far as it goes). Also, various potentially-interesting post-accident messages are in a commercial code -- but the book doesn't translate it, or even mention it.
