Why the Titanic Sank

ON 10 APRIL 1912 TITANIC – the largest and most luxurious ocean liner in the world – left Southampton on her maiden voyage. The only headlines she expected to make were on her triumphant arrival in New York. But just five days later, she was a wreck at the bottom of the North Atlantic, taking over 1,500 lives with her. Why? The answer to this question is discovered in a complicated set of circumstances – a chain of events that came together to seal her fate. Nature of course played her part in the form of that gigantic iceberg as well as in other less obvious ways. Most of all though, there was human error, complacency and an inability to think the unthinkable when designing or sailing the ship. Just one different action at any stage in the chain could have saved the life of Titanic or at least most, if not all, of those aboard her. This book explains why the largest ship in the world was lost and just how the voyage of a lifetime turned into a nightmare.
