9781442221673: Final Voyage: The World's Worst Maritime Disasters

Everyone knows the story of the Titanic, but in terms of loss of life that catastrophe doesn't even figure as one of the 50 worst maritime disasters of the last three hundred years. The causes of disaster are legion: besides icebergs and enemy torpedoes, ships have been sunk by fire, explosions, flooding, capsizing, storms, collisions and human error.

Ships featured include:

Wilhelm Gustloff - how history forgot the 10,000 killed
Lancastria - why Britain's worst disaster was covered up
Mont Blanc - the ship that destroyed a city
Sultana - triumph and tragedy on the Mississippi
Dona Paz - the deadliest disaster in living memory

With disasters from all over the world, these are stories of the people - whether they lived or died - as well as the ships. They are stories of tragedy, war, heroism and cowardice, greed and sacrifice. Only for the lucky few were they also stories of rescue and survival.
