Alexander Bell Filson Young (1876–1938) was a journalist, who published the first book about the sinking of the RMS Titanic, called Titanic, published in 1912 only 37 days after the sinking. He was also an essayist, war correspondent in the Boer War and World War I, a programmes advisor to the BBC, and the author of two novels.


  • Clearly written by an essayist

    By Navyangel
    This book is very descriptive and detail oriented. That in itself isn't awful, but I found the descriptions to be long winded and distracting. There are only so many times I'm willing to read about grey horses and their crests of manes. The book is loaded with this kind of imagery and it was increasingly difficult to keep up with a sense of time or location as a result.
  • Beautifully heartbreaking

    By Elizabeth394
    I finished this in two days, and I'm a slow reader. The descriptions were enthralling and Young mentioned things about the disaster I'd never heard before. Very eloquent and tragic read; I highly recommend it.

  • Decent book.

    By The Duct-Man
    This book portraits a story unlike the Hollywood version of Titanic. The author takes the readers into an in depth level of understand and imagination of what was really the legendary Titanic looks like. Good reading.

    Filson Young is an amazing writer. He provides a surplus of details; therefore makes you feel like if you were there. Quality time is spent on every character, event, and aspect of Titanic-from Belfast to New York!
