TV actor, producer, and screenwriter Valentine Palmer sets out to write the definitive account of the Titanic’s sinking. As the 100th anniversary of the fateful night approaches, Palmer follows up innumerable conflicting stories and theories that still, to this day, surround the doomed liner. Charles Herbert Lightoller, Palmer’s great uncle, was the highest-ranking surviving officer from the disaster. It was only after the great man’s death in 1952 that his sister, Gertrude, Palmer’s eccentric grandmother, began to hint to her young grandson of the contradictory accounts of both her brother’s supposed heroism and his suspect testimonies at the investigations into the sinking. Palmer’s grandmother doesn’t accuse Joseph Bruce Ismay, managing director of the White Star Line, in so many words. Rather, she chooses to address her grandson in riddles, which have taken him a lifetime to interpret. This, Grandma Gertrude hints, is the man who made her brother ´´an offer he couldn’t refuse´´! In-depth research by a number of parties over the past 100 years reveals that something was not quite right about the testimonies of both Ismay and Lightoller. Britain’s preparation for possible war with Germany, tales of gold and priceless treasures aboard the doomed liner and a possible insurance fraud of unimaginable complexity are just some of the mysteries and possible conspiracies that Palmer seeks to shed new light on in this fascinating book. With dogged determination he works his way through the revelations of his great aunt, Lightoller’s widow, and his maternal grandmother’s hints of cover-ups at the highest level. Palmer’s searches take him through the maze of conflicting testimonies and reported conversations from survivors. His task becomes ever more daunting as he sees the truth, like his great uncle’s honour, become increasingly shrouded in the mists of time. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Valentine Palmer.

On the 100th anniversary of the Titanic´s sinking, a prominent Titanic researcher offers a final chance to see the ship before it disappears forever. The Titanic was the biggest, most luxurious passenger ship the world had ever seen; the ads proclaimed it to be unsinkable. When it sank in April 1912 after hitting an iceberg, killing more than 1,500 people, the world was forever changed and the public has been spellbound ever since. Now, a century later, the Titanic is about to disappear again: its infrastructure is set to collapse in the next few years. In this book, scientist Charles Pellegrino offers what may be the last opportunity to see the ship before it is lost to the seas for eternity. The last book to be written while survivors were still alive and able to contribute details, Farewell, Titanic includes many untold stories about the sinking and exploration of the unsinkable ship. Author Charles Pellegrino provided source material for James Cameron´s Oscar-winning Titanic film, which is being re-released in 3D at the same time as the book Written by a New York Times best-selling author who participated in the post-discovery analysis of the Titanic´s remains during the expedition that immediately followed Robert Ballard´s Titanic discovery in 1985 1.

The Titanic disaster of April 15, 1912 has been described as one of the most fascinating single events in human history. The sinking of the Titanic has left an indelible impression and vast psychological impact on the world. Titanic has spawned books, plays, poems, films, drama films, songs, concerts, musicals, novels, video games, newsreels, slideshows, multimedia works, and works of art. It has been noted that Titanic spawned the largest number of songs regarding any disaster or event in American history. The event became a popular theme for balladeers, blues, bluegrass, and country singers in the Southern United States. British songwriters commemorated the disaster with appeals religious, chauvinistic, and heroic sentiments. One person has suggested that the reaction to the Titanic can only be compared to the assassinations of Lincoln and Kennedy. The three most written about subjects since April 1912 are Jesus, the American Civil War, and Titanic. The story of the RMS Titanic has been interpreted in numerous ways - as a symbol of technological hubris, a classic disaster tale, an indictment regarding class divisions of the society at that time, a kind of morality play, a romantic tragedy, and somewhere between a Greek and Elizabethan tragedy. There have been so many books written about the Titanic that there are very few that will tell you anything new, but every now and then you find an absolute gem. Charles Hagan´s audiobook adds to the Titanic story with his 12 Titanic Lessons for Christians! There are danger lessons, time lessons, and motivational lessons all culled from the disaster that was Titanic! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mark Huff.
