Titanic: Those in Peril on the Sea
If you rate yourself an expert on the “Titanic,” you can stop right here. You are not the target audience. The book is a carefully researched story of events before, during and after April 1912. Except for the section on the physics of the collision, there is nothing earth shattering here. This book is for everyone who is not an expert. ...
If you rate yourself an expert on the “Titanic,” you can stop right here. You are not the target audience. The book is a carefully researched story of events before, during and after April 1912. Except for the section on the physics of the collision, there is nothing earth shattering here. This book is for everyone who is not an expert. “Titan-o-philes,” don’t say I didn’t warn you. The saga of the Titanic is ever changing, never ending. To keep pace with the story I have published a revision of my book “Titanic: Those in Peril on the Sea.” The revision includes more details, more facts, and more controversies. Is that Wallace Hartley’s Violin? How did J. J. Astor die and what became of his dog “Kitty?” Which prominent people “missed the boat?” Was there a fire in the coal bunkers? Where were the lookouts’ binoculars? Did anyone commit suicide? There is more information about Thomas Andrews and his safety concerns, how Captain Smith reacted to the crisis, what the New York Times said about J. Bruce Ismay in his obituary, and the Titanic’s destiny. The Liner is an on-going and growing legend. Witness the plans to build an exact duplicate, the large sums of money paid at auction for the slightest of relics, television specials too numerous to mention and the mountain of requests to Harland & Wolff for more information. So, the search for the truth continues. The mission statement has not changed and the objective remains the same. To quote from the foreward, “On your behalf I will be skeptical, factual, analytical and when required, cynical.” It is there that I describe my obsession with “The Convergence of the Twain.” My obsession is alive and well.
