In April 1912 the unthinkable happened - the supposedly unsinkable Titanic sank after hitting an iceberg. Or so it was thought. For more than 80 years, the drama of the last hours of the Titanic has long fascinated the public. The discovery of the wreck by Dr. Robert Ballard and his team became one of the greatest media events of the late 1980s. However, as time passed, so evidence has appeared to cast doubt on the accepted wisdom of the great liner's fate. In the best-selling The Riddle of the Titanic Robin Gardiner and co-author Dan Van der Vat shocked the world with their claims that it was not in fact the Titanic but the sister ship Olympic, which ended its days amidst the icy waters of the North Atlantic on that fateful night.Here, in another paperback reprint of Titanic: The Ship that Never Sank? the follow-up volume, Robin Gardiner reveals what really happened on that terrible night, and gives fresh evidence which sheds new light on the true circumstances.
