BACK COVER BLURB

Ninety-five years ago, as the Titanic slowly sank, a ‘mystery’ ship was seen as he slipped below the waves. Thinking it would be their salvation, rockets were fired from Titanic to attract the unknown ship, but to no avail.

With 1500 souls on board, Titanic foundered, but what of the mystery ship? At the subsequent enquires in both the USA and the UK, Captain Stanley Lord and his vessel, the Californian, were accused of ignoring the Titanic’s distress calls. Ever since, controversy has reigned over whether the Californian was the ship that ignored Titanic’s plight.TITANIC and the CALIFORNIAN by Thomas B. Williams: A photograph showing the general appearance. Condition is at least VERY GOOD PLUS.

The author, Thomas B. Williams (an investigative journalist), unearthed the required ‘new and important evidence’ which prompted the British Government to re-open the case surrounding Captain Lord and the Californian and effectively proved that the much maligned captain and his ship could not have been the mystery ship seen from the decks of the doomed Titanic.
