The Ultimate Titanic Reference Book, With All The Benefits Of Hindsight !

  No individual historian can possibly be an expert on every aspect of his chosen topic, and - as a result - historical errors have a way of creeping into written histories covering most historical subjects. This has been especially true in the case of the Titanic disaster - a subject that has seen a century's worth of historical errors, misconceptions and outright deceptions gradually become an accepted part of the historical record. Indeed, such errors first began making their appearance during the official Titanic inquiries in 1912, when the vast body of testimony - and a lack of sufficient time to digest or analyze that testimony - resulted in a number of erroneous conclusions being made.

  The present book is a radical departure from that early tradition, since it has been written by a coalition of experts who have spent many years digesting the original inquiry testimony as well as evaluating a bounty of additional evidence that has come to light in the hundred years since 1912. Each of the book's co-authors is a recognized specialist in their chosen area of study, and each chapter has been exhaustively researched, analyzed and referenced utilizing the very best evidence that is currently available. The book describes and quantifies the sinking of Titanic as it actually happened, and it authoritatively disproves a number of long-standing myths about the disaster that have taken root over the past ten decades; surprisingly, though, the book also demonstrates that a number of so-called "legends" about the disaster are actually based in solid historical fact.

  Each of the book’s co-authors is a recognized specialist in his or her chosen area of study, and each chapter has been exhaustively researched, analyzed and referenced utilizing the very best evidence that is currently available. Following the basic layout of the 1912 Wreck Commission report, this modern-day report provides fascinating insights into the ship itself, -

the American and British inquiries, the passengers and crew, the fateful journey and ice warnings received, the damage and sinking, protocol and process of rescue, the circumstances in connection with the SS Californian and SS Mount Temple, and the aftermath and ramifications that followed the disaster.

  Samuel Halpern has written numerous articles on Titanic and has given a number of presentations. A member of the Titanic Historical Society and Titanic International Society, he has organized some passionate authors from all over the world to write this book, including: Capt. Charles Weeks, Professor Emeritus in Marine Transportation at the Maine Maritime Academy; George Behe, past vice-president of the Titanic Historical Society; The Olympic-Class Ships author Mark Chirnside; Titanic the Ship Magnificent authors Bruce Beveridge and Steve Hall; Titanic: Monument and Warning author Dave Gittins; and other writers each with specialist Titanic fields of interest, Bill Wormstedt, Tad Fitch, Lester J Mitcham, and Cathy Ackers-Jordan; Foreword by J.
