"The Titanic Conspiracy raises many questions, including: Why was the ship's helmsman packed off to South Africa? And why did the ship's log go down with the ship? Why did Captain Smith accelerate into the ice field of which he had been warned many times? And why did he wait twenty-five minutes to start the pumps that could have saved the ship? The book reveals Smith's astonishing accident records, and exposes the White Star line as having the worst safety record of any transatlantic shipping line. What caused the hole near the bow? The iceberg cracked the plates along the ship's side, but this hole looks like the result of an explosion. Why is the position of the wreck irreconcilable with the Titanic's final SOS calls? Was the Titanic replaced at the last minute by her sister ship, the already damaged Olympic, in a plot to recover the huge losses she ran up? It would have required little more than the switching of a few name plates." "The Titanic Conspiracy sheds new light on key evidence from the official inquiries and transcripts of radio transmissions, and offers new insight gained from examining relics recovered from the ship and from interviews with survivors. The authors reveal the role of the ship's true owner, millionaire J. P. Morgan (who, at the last minute, avoided sailing on the Titanic), and that White Star covered up its own gross negligence by bribing key witnesses."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
