I'm not sure I would have liked this book as much as I do if it were about a fictional event. Since the Titanic is very real, Ms. Cockroft's account of the events focusing on a few real characters was very well done. The Foreword warns that some parts are fictionalized, but wasn't the movie Titanic exactly the same. Real people died on that ship and a few real people lived to tell about it.
I very much liked the story being based on the telegraph operators (the Marconi men) because historically we know who they were and we also have evidence of the actual messages sent. This lends so much reality to the story, it was quite fascinating.
