Debunking the theory that the sister ships swapped places, this book proves a switch was not possible Titanic's older sister, the nearly identical Olympic, was involved in a serious accident in September 1911, which may have made her a liability to her owners the White Star Line. Since 1912 rumors of a conspiracy to switch the two in an elaborate insurance scam has always loomed behind the tragic story of the Titanic. Could the White Star Line have really switched the Olympic with her near identical sister in a ruse to intentionally sink their mortally damaged flagship in April 1912 and cash in on the insurance policy? This book addresses some of these conspiracy theories and illustrates both the questionable anomalies and hard technical facts that will prove the switch theory to be exactly what it is—a mere legend.
