How many stars were found on the American flag flying from the Titanic's foremast? How many dogs were on board? What happened to the only other vessel to bear the name Titanic? Why was the Titanic's helmsman prevented from seeing the approaching iceberg? The answers to these questions, and many more, are in this new book by the world's foremost Titanic authorities, John P. Eaton and Charles A. Haas. Based on research conducted on three continents and containing over 625 illustrations, many never published before, this splendid volume covers more than 250 important dates in the Titanic story, from the births of key players in the tragedy to the latest expedition to recover artifacts, and includes the first detailed accounts of how the public learned the news of the sinking as well as court hearings to establish ownership rights to the wreck.An exclusive selection of the authors' own photographs of recent expeditions, plus new material and artifact photographs, make this an essential book for both the serious historian and the casual reader.
