Titanic by Filson Young( Book )

16 editions published between 1912 and 2015 in English and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The story of the sinking of the Titanic based on first hand accounts collected in the days and weeks following the disaster. The story of the Titanic is now well known. But in the months following the disaster wild speculation was rife. On Thursday 22 May 1912, a mere 37 days after the sinking, respected London publisher Grant Richards, delivered Filson Young's book to booksellers around the capital. It was the first attempt to plot the demise of the unsinkable ship from a well-respected writer who had already argued in the light of the Oceana sinking, for proper use of the wireless on board ships. Both Filson and Grant knew victims of the sinking and both worked hard to gather first-hand testimony to use in the book. Much of his telling of the story still stands today and his speculations about the feeling of daily life aboard the doomed ship are used in books and films on the subject

With Beatty in the North sea by Filson Young( Book )

4 editions published between 1921 and 2015 in English and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Admiral of the Fleet David Richard Beatty, 1st Earl Beatty PC, GCB, OM, GCVO, DSO (17 January 1871 ? 11 March 1936) was a Royal Navy officer. After serving in the Mahdist War and then the response to the Boxer Rebellion, he commanded the 1st Battlecruiser Squadron at the Battle of Jutland in 1916, a tactically indecisive engagement after which his aggressive approach was contrasted with the caution of his commander Admiral Sir John Jellicoe. He is remembered for his comment at Jutland that "There seems to be something wrong with our bloody ships today", after two of his ships exploded. Later in the war he succeeded Jellicoe as Commander in Chief of the Grand Fleet, in which capacity he received the surrender of the German High Seas Fleet at the end of the War. He then served a lengthy term as First Sea Lord in which capacity he was involved in negotiating the Washington Naval Treaty of 1922 in which it was agreed that the USA, Britain and Japan should set their navies in a ratio of 5:5:3, with France and Italy maintaining smaller fleets."--Wikipedia

By the time that Filson Young found himself aboard Admiral Sir David Beatty's flagship in the North Sea just before the First World War, he had a varied career as a novelist, journalist, and war correspondent. He had been a special reporter during the Boer War and also had written about naval subjects such as the voyages of Christopher Columbus and the Titanic. This book, also known as 'With Beatty in the North Sea', chronicles his time as a Royal Naval Reserve Lieutenant with the Grand Fleet in 1915-1916, and provides a gripping eye-witness account of the Battle of Dogger Bank. He left the Navy in 1916, before the battle of Jutland. He recorded, a few years later, his experiences of life at sea in the Grand Fleet in this book, which captures the action of the battle and the personalities of the crews he served with
