Having read this book some time ago, I read it again.Why? Well to put it simply. it actually displays in words the questions of doubt with regards what actually took place that caused the demise of the Titanic on her maiden voyage. For there has been no other ship that was so famous or infamous on her maiden voyage. For this book displays a long list of faults, deceipts and cover ups that could only have one ending.For example , why did Captain Smith allow himself to be influenced by Ismay? Smith was the Captain and Ismay should have been ignored plus the engines were not yet "worn in". Then why on earth did the look outs NOT have their binoculars? Where were they and should the ship have sailed without them knowing their route was near the Artic where ice could float to? Also, were the stewards ordered to lock the 3rd class passengers( steerage) below after the ice berg was struck? If so....who gave the order or was it done by the stewards themselves? Read this book with an open mind, and you will come to your own conclusions whether you can or cannot agree with the authors findings.
