Nearly 2000 tons heavier than her unfortunate sister ship Titanic and boasting a host of additional safety features installed after that tragedy four years earlier, Britannic completed only five voyages before succumbing to hostile action in the Aegean during the First World War.
The author Rev. John Fleming was the Presbyterian chaplain on board the Britannic at the time, and his narrative is still the only contemporary account of the demise of the White Star liner to be published by a survivor.
This book is a moving testimony to the courage and fortitude of those involved and a unique viewpoint of the disaster, employing over forty specially selected illustrations to accompany the original text written in 1917, a concise biography of the author and detailed historical notes.
