Description
The 1,503 victims of the Titanic sinking certainly represent a horrendous loss of life. Yet here maritime expert David Williams catalogues more then 40 disasters at sea that claimed more lives—in the case of the Wilhelm Gustloff, a German refugee ship sunk by torpedo in 1945, more than six times that of Titanic's. Illustrated with a gallery of 16 color photos and paintings, and with black and white photos and drawings throughout, Williams's detailed accounts look at the ships themselves and the prevailing conditions during the disaster, as well as any rescue efforts, official responses, forensic evidence, and changes in shipping regulations that may have been instituted as a result.
