RMS Titanic: A 21st Century Update to Set the Record Straight

  • This event has passed.

Dr Noel Stimson

Sunday 13th October 10:20 - 11:20 | Northwood House

The primary purpose of the book is, as the title indicates, to counter some of the many myths and conspiracy theories that surround the tragic story of the sinking. The true story is contrasted with the allegations of excessive speed, ignoring the ice warnings, the conspiracies about switching the identities of the two ships, the fire in the coal bunker, and the destruction of the reputations of Captain Smith and J Bruce Ismay, each of which is examined in detail and either explained or ‘de-bunked’.
