What Really Sank The Titanic. New Forensic Discoveries

FICHA TÉCNICA

With the same methodology used in forensic scientists in crime-scene investigations, researchers McCarty and Foecke applied new tools to the century-old mystery. By analyzing step by step how the ship was designed and constructed, what vulnerabilities were overlooked, and how this marvel of modern engineering may have been a disaster waiting to happen, they build a compelling new scenario
We are vividly taken into bygone era, when luxury ocean travel and ruthless business competition fueled ever mightier ship construction projects built by Belfast shipyard workers, somer mere children, laboring in unsafe, exhausting conditions. With Britain, the shipbuilders, and an entire industry caught up in a mad dash to build the greatest vessel ever, shocking lapses went annoticed. Using modern microscopic techniques, the authors reveal those failures and show how they doomed the lives of at least 1,500 of the Titanic's passengers and crew
Grippingly written, this book is illustrated with fascinating period photgraphs and modern scientific evidence. It includes littleknown Titanic facts and lore, colorful portraits of the ship's designers, builders, and crew, eyewitness accounts, and a dramatic timeline of the ship's last hours. In an age when forensic can catch killers, this book does what no other book has before: fingers the culprit in one of the greatest tragedies ever.>br>Part I: The Background
