Overview

The creation of heroes where they did not exist offers us insights, in throwing off the blanket of boasting a century later, that bring history's most famous shipwreck back into sharper focus. We see into the nature of prejudice, social values, and the overriding political and national considerations of the time. This book also looks at the offered sacrificial victims of the time, in particular the character of Captain Stanley Lord of the Californian, the man charged with abandoning 1,500 people to their fate. Backed up with a new photographic archives and bolstered by a series of contemporary extracts to support its arguments, this is Titanic history presented in an entirely new and authentic light.

An interesting look at Capt. Lord. I am by no means a Lordite but I can't help but feel sorry for the man's post-TItanic life.
