More than a decade after the Titanic was located two and half miles under the North Atlantic, here is an intriguing reassessment of one of the greatest legends of the twentieth century.
The Titanic Conspiracy raises many questions, including - Why was the ship's helmsman packed off to South Africa? - Why did Captain Smith accelerate into the ice field of which he had been warned many times? And why did he wait twenty-five minutes to start the pumps that could have saved the ship? - At the last minute, was the Titanic replaced by her sister-ship, the already damaged Olympic, in a plot to recover the huge losses she ran up?
The book sheds new light on key evidence from the official inquiries and transcripts of radio transmittals and offers new insight gained from examining relics recovered from the ship and from interviews with survivors. While The Titanic Conspiracy doesn't claim to have all the answers, it raises many important questions never before asked.
