A new in-depth study into those pivotal moments, both leading up to the striking of the iceberg, and across those crucial minutes afterwards, during which the fate of Titanic, and the 2,208 souls aboard, was realized

At 11:40pm on April 14, 1912, Titanic collided with an iceberg in the middle of the North Atlantic and began to sink. From the moment the iceberg was spotted, the ship was on a collision course with destiny, with the immediate aftermath of the collision becoming a race against time for those on board to inspect the damage and determine Titanic’s fate. In this new study, the events of both the evasive maneuvers and the subsequent damage assessment are broken down, order by order, moment by moment, giving a forensic analysis of these crucial events. In doing so, with the backing of an exhaustive collection of both historical and modern data, along with over twenty years of personal research by Brad Payne, facts are separated from myths and the most accurate truths about what really happened aboard Titanic during these critical moments are revealed.
