Vážení zákazníci,
i v letních měsících přejeme spokojenou četbu knih u nás zakoupených.

Dále stále upozorňujeme že, pokud je Vaše zásilka na cestě k Vám poštovní cestou, mělo by Vám na doručovací adresu přijít oznámení o celním řízení.
Zapište v takovém případě do detailu Vaší objednávky skladové číslo, které v doručeném oznámení najdete.
Vše ostatní s celní poštou zařídíme.

Nadále upozorňujeme na nemilou novinku loňského roku, kterou je zavední paušálního poplatku za administrativní úkony České pošty spojené se zpracováním zahraničních zásilek ve výši 96kč. Tento poplatek po Vás pravděpodobně bude chtít poštovní doručovatel. Nejedná se o clo ani poštovné. Clo i poštovné je i nadále hrazeno a vyřizováno námi.

Pokud chcete mít knihu co nejdříve doma a to i mimo vánoční čas, doporučujeme zvolit zaslání kurýrem! Vyhnete se tak i prodlevě při vyclení a zmíněnému administrativnímu poplatku.

Děkujeme za pochopení.

Popis titulu (Product Description)
The most awesome ocean-going vessel the world had ever seen, the mightly TITANIC struck an iceberg and sank on the night of April 14, 1912, carrying more than 1500 souls--and uncountable secrets--to the icy bottom of the mid-Atlantic. Why did the crew steam full speed ahead into dangerous waters despite six wireless warnings? How able was the doomed behemoth.s .superb seaman. Captain Smith? Why did the nearby ship Californian ignore Titanic.s distress signals? How could such a disaster ever have occurred?

Author Walter Lord.s acclaimed classic A Night to Remember is considered the definitive written work on the TITANIC tragedy. And now he returns to the scene of chaos and horror to explore--and answer--the untold mysteries behind the twentieth century.s greatest catastrophe at sea.


Popis titulu (Amazon.com Review)
You might say that Walter Lord provoked the whole Titanic mania by interviewing dozens of survivors and fashioning their reminiscences into the classic non-fiction novel A Night to Remember, which was made into a 1958 film that heavily influenced James Cameron's 1998 epic. Some of the dialogue is more vivid than the 1998 film--when a kid sees the deadly iceberg, he says excitedly, "Oh, Muddie, look at the beautiful North Pole with no Santa Claus on it."

But much has been discovered since Lord's original book made waves--such as the shipwreck itself, and a wealth of scientific inquiry. So he wrote this semisequel, which tackles each of the remaining mysteries about the unnecessary calamity in a methodical, but quite readable, fashion. How come the wireless operators blew it so fatally? Maybe they would have had better operators if they paid them more than $5 a week--as Lord notes, it would have taken a wireless operator 18 years to earn one transatlantic ticket. How come the Californian just sat there in nearby waters and neglected to save anyone on the frantically signaling and flare-firing Titanic? Lord quotes a man on the nonsinking ship admitting to "a certain amount of slackness," which he uses for a sardonic chapter title.

Some of the characters are more sympathetic, such as Renee Harris, who used the money she won suing the Titanic owners for her husband's death to bankroll neophyte playwright Moss Hart's first show. Lord says that Hart's memoir, Act One, depicts Harris reacting to an opening-night flop with optimism. After you've survived the Titanic, what's to worry?

Walter Lord has gotten better reviews, and he needn't fret about his reputation. The Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Barbara Tuchman, author of A Distant Mirror, had this reaction to Night Lives On: "Stunning ... his detection and discoveries make a first-class historical reconstruction and a model in the research and writing of that difficult art." --Tim Appelo
