Was the ship doomed by a faulty design? Was the hull's steel too brittle? Was the captain negligent in the face of repeated warnings? On the night of April 14, 1912, the "unsinkable" RMS Titanic, with over 2,200 passengers onboard, struck an iceberg in the North Atlantic and plunged to a watery grave. For nearly a century, the shocking loss has haunted the world. Now the same CSI techniques that are used to solve modern murder cases have been applied to the sinking of history's most famous ship. Researchers Jennifer Hooper McCarty and Tim Foecke draw on their participation in expeditions to the ship's wreckage and experiments on recovered Titanic materials to build a compelling new scenario. The answers will astound you.. . . Grippingly written, What Really Sank the Titanic is illustrated with fascinating period photographs and modern scientific evidence reflecting the authors' intensive study of Titanic artifacts for more than ten years. In an age when forensics can catch killers, this book does what no other book has before: fingers the culprit in one of the greatest tragedies ever. "A fascinating trail of historical forensics." --James R. Chiles, author of Inviting Disaster>/I> "An essential facet of Titanic history. Five stars!" --Charles Pellegrino, author of Her Name Titanic With 16 pages of photos

Designed as the technological marvel of her age, RMS Titanic claimed to be the largest, strongest, safest ship of the early 20th Century; a triumph of centuries of Great Britain's unrivalled shipbuilding expertise. Yet nothing could be further from the truth. The 1500 American and British victims of RMS Titanic went to their watery graves never knowing that much of the ship was imperfectly forged from cheap and recycled scrap-iron and that the tragedy was caused by a chain of gross negligence and greed. Crime investigator Robert Strange has studied scientific, forensic evidence from metal raised from the ship's carcass miles deep on the ocean floor, and secrets hidden for a hundred years within the archives of the shipyard that built and launched the Titanic, to answer the question: 'Who Sank the Titanic?' Who Sank the Titanic: The Final Verdict examines the intense cost-cutting pressures which contributed to Titanic's demise and one of the greatest loss-of-life disasters in maritime history. The book uncovers gross negligence in every area of the ship's planning and construction and accuses her owners, her planners, her builders and the Government ministers who watched her set sail of complicity in one of the greatest mass-homicides in history.
A one-time Fleet Street investigative reporter and crime correspondent, he has been fascinated by the Titanic disaster and this book is the result of five years of extensive research.

In a night of unforgettable tragedy, the world's most famous liner struck an iceberg on 14 April 1912 and sank. Over 1500 people died. Whose fault it was, and how the passengers and crew reacted, has been the subject of continuing dispute over the 100 years since the disaster. This is an account of Titanic's tragic maiden voyage which also focuses on some of those who died: among them Titanic's captain Edward Smith and builder Thomas Andrews, John Jacob Astor, the richest man on board, and the bandmaster, Wallace Hartley, who played as the ship sank. In this centenary edition Stephanie Barczewski traces the events of that fatal night. Many of those who died were treated as heroes and how these men were remembered says much about contemporary values of manhood, chivalry and national pride. Titanic: A Night Remembered also sets the liner in the context of three ports: Belfast, where she was built; Southampton, which lost 600 citizens as members of her crew; and Queenstown in Ireland, her last port of call.

I went ahead and integrated some of Robbie's shorter works into the one now called "The Titanic Edition", materials now also including Abe Lincoln, Pinocchio, John Lennon and Jesus – keeping in mind that all individual pages don't necessarily work in and of themselves but somehow contribute to the respective specific tale, taken as a whole. Maybe it is this idea of Robbie's very real challenges with autism, that are types of parts contributing to the whole which would seem to apply in other ways, perhaps, as a message to us for our mental, if not religious benefit, general principle or rule of thumb for daily living. It is this idea that that which immediately meets the eye is not necessarily everything underlying the whole substance either, somewhat like the inevitable iceberg that so sunk the Titanic. It becomes one of Robbie's obsessions that continues as he is still knocking the sketches out, always about this majestic ship that proved temporary/transitory, at best. Let's hope this particular interest of his doesn't reflect an exact parallel/parable of other things going on for him and/or all of us either. Sometimes actually, my wife, Lisa, and I aren't always so certain that this particular interest of his is altogether so wholesome either. It is as if, you know, the people don't end up faring so well of course, once the majestic mechanical industrial floating wonder hits the massive ice crystal to its, and by extension perhaps, to everyone else's demise too. But if we don't take it that way, that is, if this story of a sinking ship, at least as Robbie sees it, is really a type of triumph, then perhaps Robbie is on to something. A tragic event that is cool, not because of the corresponding deaths, but because the nature of a majestic ship used once, somehow still existing in our minds, becomes a worthy attainment – that the birth, short-lived journey and abrupt plummeting has value beyond the tragedy of lost lives. And for Robbie, at least, that value seems to continue on if not in his mind's eye, then perhaps in his sketches and drawings. That there could be a type of silver lining to a story that doesn't end well. It still endures, hopefully in a wholesome way, as he contributes to this kind of residual art – a kind of manifestation, as it were, that continues through the eyes and hands of an autistic young man, in this case Robert Marshall Haven. It serves to please us, if not feed us, as well-founded art often does.
