The Christian Science Monitor recently reviewed Titanic book Ship of Dreams by Gareth Russell. They mostly like the book and the details he revealed about the passengers lives he looked at.
The book’s main strength is Russell’s skill at examining his sources. He’s not Walter Lord, trooping from one survivor’s parlor to another; since he’s not mainly relying on eyewitnesses, he’s not obliged to believe them. As a result, his account feels quarrelsomely alive in a way most others don’t.
The Unthinkable Sinkable Titanic Marked The End Of A Gilded Era (Christian Science Monitor, 3 Dec 2019)
Claims of a Titanic like shipwreck have surfaced from a photo on Google Maps. The photo is off a harbor in Oshima Island, Japan. It is claimed that a shadowy object can be seen lurking under the water. Naturally it has caused many to wonder if they got it wrong about Titanic. Or perhaps some secret military activity. Personally I believe it is Marvin the Martian up to his old tricks again. Then again some say it is just Google glitch.
