Praise for The Last Voyage of the Andrea Doria:

An extensively documented account of the 1956 sinking of the Italian luxury liner...Readers will find amazing stories of serendipitous luck, heroism, cowardice, and tragedy. --Booklist

Praise for Greg King and Penny Wilson:

"[King and Wilson] have succeeded marvelously, offering up a lucid and entertaining historical portrait." --The Wall Street Journal for Twilight of Empire

[A] fine example of historical detective work by the always-entertaining and-enlightening King-and-Wilson duo. --Booklist for Twilight of Empire

"A fascinating account of a ship, its passengers, and its terrible fate." --Publishers Weekly for Lusitania

"Highly informed, compellingly written...there was a great deal more to the story than its heart-wrenching tragedy." --The Wall Street Journal for Lusitania

More than a chronicle of the tragedy, this offers a penetrating look at the end of the Edwardian era." --Booklist for Lusitania

This personal and political study, with its revisionist take, will be popular with historians and general readers alike and is highly recommended." --Library Journal (starred review) for The Assassination of the Archduke
