April 15, 2012 will be the 100 year anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic. Did you know that Fourth Officer Boxhall told Captain Smith that there was no damage done to the Titanic after it struck the iceberg? Did you know that Captain Smith ordered the engines to start up after the Titanic hit the iceberg and steamed toward Halifax for approximnately ten to tewnty minutes with a tremendous hole in the starboard bow? Did you know that the Titanic hit the iceberg with enough force to lift fourteen Washington Monuments in the air for one second in time? Did you know that there was no 300 foot gash cut into the side of the Titanic; but rather, the Titanic hit an underwater ice ledge of the iceberg and sliced off its starboard bottom? Did you know that the Titanic had a double bottom except in the port and starboard bow, the Titanic's Achilles' heel? Did you know that right before the Titanic broke apart, the boilers that provided steam for the electric generators exploded and blew the ship apart? Of course you didn't! All you know is what you saw at the movies and that isn't what really happened. Titanic Unintended Consequences explores the "myth" that was created by Hollywood and explaines, using the words of the survivors and recent wreckage discoveries, what really happened on the evening of April 14-15, 2012. After reading Titanic Unintended Consequences, you will know and understand what really happened that night.

It did sink on April 15
I haven't read the book, but i'm just wanting to correct a mistake in the overview: titanic sank on April 15, not April 25
Hollywood beware! Mr. Sheppard has taken on the myths and legends surrounding Titanic and produced an eye-opening page turner. The transcripts of the Congressional hearings make the reader feel as if they have been transported back to 1912. These eye-witness accounts provide the facts that support the authors fresh perspective. Entertaining and thought-provoking at the same time! Mr. Sheppard has produced a book for the ages!
Forget what you think you know about the cause of the Titanics sinking. Thought provoking, compelling, riveting...could not stop reading!
