The Sinking of the Titanic
Titanic has an enthralling and timeless association with the word unsinkable. Hailed ‘Queen of the Ocean’ she was a floating palace, a triumph of engineering, and the very embodiment of British accomplishment.
Yet, though this name, given to vaunt her masterly creation, the sinking of the Titanic has made her name today eponymous of disaster, ill-fortune and catastrophe. Her achievements are overshadowed; her owners maligned for seafaring malpractice and upholding the industry’s systemic complacency with safety.
Midway through her maiden voyage the Titanic was stricken through a tragedy caused by the very element she was deemed to overcome – nature; a tragedy that would consign her name to a lifelong association with failure. The Unsinkable Titanic: The Triumph Behind a Disaster dispels century-long misconception to reveal the true legacy of this great ship and the people behind it, in this lavish restoration from a tainted past.
The Unsinkable Titanic: The Triumph Behind a Disaster deconstructs the rise and fall of a liner that was no failure, but a defining moment of twentieth century shipping. Built as an unrivalled monument to safety and luxury for the North Atlantic she instead became its greatest victim. This is the reclamation of the remarkable legacy of a ship like no other.
