A Night to Remember is a 1955 non-fiction book by Walter Lord about the sinking of the ocean liner R.M.S. Titanic in 1912. The book was very successful, and is still considered a definitive resource about the RMS Titanic. Lord authored a follow-up book, The Night Lives On, in 1986.
A film adaptation of the same name was released in 1958.
Walter Lord had been very interested in the sinking of the RMS Titanic since he was a child and wrote A Night to Remember while working as a copy editor at a New York ad agency. Lord interviewed over sixty survivors of the sinking and described in detail the events leading up to the Titanic striking the iceberg, the sinking and the rescue by the RMS Carpathia. The book also includes facts about the Titanic, a list of passengers with those that survived in italics and other information.
