The True Story of Life, Death, and Justice
Titanic is not simply a sad romance—husbands left behind while wives wept in the lifeboats. Titanic is also a story of children who went down with the ship, of wives who rowed, and of survivors who lived to testify in court—of who lived, who died, and why. It is the story of benefit concerts; of clothing, combs, and hairpins for those who had lost everything; of the crewmember pursued by the lawyers of wealthy survivors; of people the survivors called “crazed Italians” and “savage foreigners.” It is a story of corporate greed, legal manipulations, and government involvement. Nine-tenths of Titanic’s story lies beneath the surface. To truly understand Titanic, we must dive deep. We must grapple with all these details. When we do, this gripping tale—with all its heartbreak, drama, and deception—has the power to teach us a great deal about ourselves: Titanic is a story with teeth. In less time than it takes to watch James Cameron’s blockbuster Titanic film, 1,500 people out of the 2,200 aboard perished in one of the most stunningly unexpected tragedies of all time. Go beyond the blockbuster film to encounter the details that make clear why so many children in steerage died—more than all the men in first class. Open the doors to the truth with this dazzling excerpt from Untold Titanic.
