Nearly 100 years after the most famous maritime disaster in history, we are assured that we know everything there is to know about the White Star Liner Titanic. While the basic story is undeniable, the details of what happened during the evacuation are still debated. Why were the crew slow to react to the impending disaster? Why was the iceberg not seen till too it was late? Why were 400 seats in the lifeboats left vacant? Were the steerage passengers held below while the 1st class escaped? Did the Captain really shoot himself? Why were there lifeboats for barely half of those on board? Finally, the book considers whether a Titanic with a full lifeboat complement could have evacuated everyone in the 2 hours and 40 minutes from collision to sinking, and also ponders the possibility that an inquiry into another ship's loss in 1909 could have kindled public opinion into demanding that "boats for all" be provided for all inquiry that never ultimately happened.
