Synopsis: Was the ship doomed by a faulty design?
Was the hull's steel too brittle?
Was the captain negligent in the face of repeated warnings?
On the night of April 14, 1912, the "unsinkable" RMS Titanic, with over 2,200 passengers onboard, struck an iceberg in the North Atlantic and plunged to a watery grave. For nearly a century, the shocking loss has haunted the world. Now the same CSI techniques that are used to solve modern murder cases have been applied to the sinking of history's most famous ship. Researchers Jennifer Hooper McCarty and Tim Foecke draw on their participation in expeditions to the ship's wreckage and experiments on recovered Titanic materials to build a compelling new scenario. The answers will astound you. . .
Grippingly written, What Really Sank the Titanic is illustrated with fascinating period photographs and modern scientific evidence reflecting the authors intensive study of Titanic artifacts for more than ten years. In an age when forensics can catch killers, this book does what no other book has before: fingers the culprit in one of the greatest tragedies ever.
"A fascinating trail of historical forensics."
--James R. Chiles, author of Inviting Disaster
"An essential facet of Titanic history. Five stars!"
--Charles Pellegrino, author of Her Name Titanic
With 16 pages of photos
