Why is so much heroism attached to the sinking of the Titanic? Why do we accord impossible glory to the miserable, misbegotten drowining of the equivalent of a small town? What process led to the creation of champions? Who were the real heroes, and how were they overlooked? What did society - and the press - do with an overriding need for blame?By identifying the fable-making, and finally throwing off a blanket of boasting, this book enables a fresh, sharp focus on history's most famous shipwreck. We see into the nature of prejudice, public values and political and national motives. It explores the light and the dark of what we thin we know: about the engineers, the musicians, the Captain, his officers, owners and officialdom - as well as the sinking itself and society's curious 'celebration' of abject catastrophe.It also looks at sacrificial victims, in particular the character of Captain Stanley Lord of the Californian, a man tarred with abandoning fifteen hundred people to their fate.Backed up with a new photographic archive and bolstered by a series of contemporary extracts to support its arguments, this is Titanic history presented in an entirely new and authentic light.

About the Author:
Senan Molony lives in Dublin and is a journalist for the Irish Independent. This is his second book for Tempus Publishing.
Review:
"The complexities of the Vietnam War cannot be addressed in this abundantly illustrated volume. The best it can do is present the facts of the war, which it does in an accessible, smoothly written text... The author uses quotes from government documents, interviews letters, newspaper articles, songs, and speeches as sources. The book is illustrated throughout with maps, photographs, time lines, and archival documents..."
