The Titanic - Everything Was Against Us

Autor Simon Angel
en Limba Engleză Paperback
Nearly 100 years after the most famous maritime disaster in history, we are assured that we know everything there is to know about the White Star Liner Titanic and that there is little more to add to the story. While the basic story is undeniable, the details of what happened during the evacuation are still debated, plagued by disinformation, personal politics and our simple lack of knowledge. This book details the elements that combined to transform one of humanity's triumphant achievements of engineering into a devastating encapsulation of overconfidence and other human failings.

Utilising the inquiry transcripts, and a hundred years worth of interviews, stories and recollections, the stories of the Titanic and her controversies can now be related in full. Were the 3rd class passengers held below while the 1st class escaped? Why was the iceberg not seen till it was too late? Why were 400 lifeboat seats wasted? Was valuable time wasted while the crew assessed the damage? And if there had been enough lifeboats, could everyone have been saved in the 2 hours and 40 minutes it took for the ship to sink? These and other questions are explored in this invaluable work. A review can be found here: http: //
