Product description

Review

"Titanic Remembered by marine geologist Alan Ruffman is a well-written book that offers readers the Canadian connection in the Titanic story. This book is beautifully illustrated with visuals... [I recommend it highly." (Ann Abel Resource Links)

"...it's refreshing to find a Titanic product that offers value. Titanic Remembered -- The Unsinkable Ship and Halifax, a glossy 72-page text-and-picture book from Formac, features both original research and never-before-seen-photos. ...several are gems... Ruffman is accurate on points where others have fumbled." (David Swick The Halifax Daily News)

"The entertaining and informative text, numerous old photographs and a selection of contemporary colour views makes Titanic Remembered a necessary addition to the library of any Titanic buff or fan of Canadian history." (Mike Filey Toronto Sun)

"Beautifully designed, this affordable small-format paperback is filled with high quality reproductions of old black and white photos, and images of items from the Marine Museum. But this is much more than a picture book. Because of geographic location, Canadian ships took on the grim task of searching for victims and many of the victims of the disaster are buried in Halifax. Ruffman puts names to the victims, their families and those who helped them, thereby providing a greater understanding of the aftermath of the sinking." (Maria Kubacki Telegraph-Journal)

"To this day people here in the UK are still discovering that they have relatives buried in one of the Halifax Titanic graveyards and this book will help them understand the whole story of the aftermath of the disaster." (Journal of British Titanic Society)

"Titanic enthusiasts -- and especially those with an interest in the Canadian angle -- will welcome this recent addition to the ever-burgeoning Titanic literature. (Sarah Robertson Canadian Book Review Annual)

"Despite of the shattering details, in his publication the experienced marine geologist and historian manages to draw a clear picture of a city in mourning confronted with the sobering task to pick up, identify, catalogue and bury the remainders of one of the greatest marine disasters ever. Alan Ruffman's book is dedicated to all who were lost with impressive emotionality and documentary frankness, reflected in both words and pictures without drifting into triteness or gruesome horror." (Petra Feyahn From "Der Navigator", (Germany) Translation)

"The very effective and extensive use of approximately one hundred photographs many in colour provides a fascinating illustration of the objects, people and locations alluded to in each of the chapters." (Canadian Review of Materials)
