Titanic: Destination Disaster The Legends and the Reality by JP Eaton and CA Haas Revised and Expanded Edition
Ninety years after the most famous sinking of all time, two of the world’s foremost authorities on the Titanic present this popular account of the sea’s best-known disaster.
No other ship, nor maritime tragedy, holds more fascination than RMS Titanic―at the time of her launch, the world’s largest moving man-made object. Ninety 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.
