Titanic: Destination Disaster : the Legends and the Reality (RSL R534)

By : John P. Eaton & Charles A. Haas

No other ship, nor maritime tragedy, holds more fascination than the Titanic - at the time of her launch, the world's largest moving man-made object. Over eighty years after the most famous sinking of all time, two of the world's foremost authorities present this popular account of the sea's best-known disaster. Myth and legend have long been part of the story. The authors explore many of the misconceptions that have developed over the years concerning the ship, the people and the sinking, and give the most likely explanations based on present-day research and knowledge. The whole story is expertly summarized - from building and launching, to a fascinating account of the remarkable discovery of the wreck, two-and-a-half miles down, by unmanned submersible. New to this edition is coverage of the subsequent crewed dives including the authors' own photographic visit to the site, and the artifact recovery expeditions. It all adds up to a book that will appeal to general reader and dedicated Titanic expert alike.
