The discovery of a ribbon of steel apart from Titanic's two main bodies of wreckage prompted new theories as to what happened to the ship when it collided with ice in 1912. Among the many startling conclusions in this reexamination of the disaster is the probability that the White Star Line was aware of possible structural weaknesses in their new superliners. Dives to Titanic's sister ship, the ill-fated Britannic, at the bottom of the Aegean Sea, reinforces some of the speculation. A fascinating read. ~ Reviewed by Alden Graves
