Why the Titanic Sank

Brad Rousse

One of the iconic tragedies of the modern era, the sinking of the Titanic has become shrouded in legends, true and false, about exactly why the ship sank. Yes, OK, it hit an iceberg. However, the details of why the ship was where it was, how the crew responded before, during, and after the collision, and many other factors, have become “common knowledge.” Like so much of common knowledge, it isn’t always accurate.

This book separates fact from fiction regarding that fateful event.
