About the Book
In recent years, a string of allegations have also been made to the effect that the Titanic was suffering from a fire in one of her coal bunkers during the maiden voyage. Televised programmes, media broadcasts, and even a new book would have the public believe that Titanic was all but a blazing inferno before she even struck the iceberg, and that it was the fire that actually doomed the ship.
Then there is the question of the time difference between ship’s time and time on shore on the night of the disaster – a complex navigational mystery that has a direct bearing on understanding key aspects of how events played out on that fateful night.
Now follow an international and world-renowned team of Titanic and maritime historians and researchers as we attempt to solve two of the most important, and most publicized, mysteries of the Titanic disaster.
I am a maritime historian and author. Some of the books I have authored or co-authored include "Lusitania: An Illustrated Biography", "On A Sea of Glass: The Life & Loss of the RMS Titanic", "The Edwardian Superliners: A Trio of Trios", "The Unseen Mauretania : The Ship and In Rare Illustrations", "The Unseen Aquitania: The Ship In Rare Illustrations", and Conspiracies At Sea: Titanic & Lusitania". Check out my latest book, "Titanic: Solving the Mysteries", available only here through Blurb, and co-authored with Mark Chirnside, Tad Fitch, Ioannis Geogiou, Steve Hall, Samuel Halpern, and Bill Wormstedt.
