Now, for the first time, Titanic expert Tim Maltin gathers together all the key elements surrounding the disaster and presents a fascinating, compulsive and accurate account of what really happened. Taking as his lead 101 oft-quoted theories about the fateful night, Maltin rigorously examines each one in chronological order, and in so doing tells the true story of the Titanic and the night she sank with the loss of 1,500 lives.
