    On Making Light, Jim McDonald points to another unsung hero, Captain Rostron of RMS Carpathia (*):

    On receiving Titanic’s distress call he turned toward and ran all ahead flank into a known ship-killing ice field.

    It’s short. It’s memorable. Read it.

    (*) Ok, *now* you can make a LB joke.

    I’m really late to comment on this (as usual), but thank you for this. It’s been a delight to listen to. (I really need to expand my knowledge of good gospel music.)  

  • Steve Turner’s book, The Band that Played On, is a delightful and heart rending discussion of the band on the Titanic.  Well written, and a great history. My review is here:

     Thank you! I can think of a friend or two who would enjoy just such a book, so onto my “gift ideas” list it goes! (I’m not sure I’m quite up for heart-rending just at  the moment, but I will note it as one of those books–and these I truly love–that shows how historians do history.)
