This is the fullest treatment to date of this extraordinary event. The Royal navy guessed what the Admiral was going to do but could not thwart it. The sinking produced the last casualties and the last prisoners of the war. Van der Vat also tells the fascinating story of the complicated salvage operation which re-claimed much of the ships' steel (fragments of which are on the moon today!). Dan Van Der Vat has written a number of books on maritime history, including The Riddle of the Titanic.
