What could possibly connect the famous sinking of the Titanic in 1912 and a WWII German U-boat loaded with a mysterious cargo? In this tribute to the 100th anniversary of the famous disaster, Chris Angus takes the reader on an adventure that includes shipwreck survivors, stolen treasures, a race across the Arctic and a century-old journal that holds the key to the connection and solving the mystery. Laura Engalls is an anthropologist working with the Inuit in Greenland when she’s shown the diary of sixteen year old Titanic survivor Samuel Meade – a diary whose story holds clues to the whereabouts of missing Titanic treasure. She enlists the help of reporter and Titanic fanatic Matt Mosher, as well as native Greenlander Ulrik, to uncover the truth. Together they begin an adventure that takes them across the inhospitable ice fields of Greenland. However, they soon discover they are not the only ones trying to unravel the mystery. What ensues is a tale of intrigue, international thievery and murder that ranges across 100 years, from the sinking of the famous ship and a plot hatched by Hitler himself to the machinations of present-day neo-Nazis and a modern-day treasure hunt for the truth. 1.

This account of the sinking of the RMS Titanic was written by Lawrence Beesley and was first published in 1912. The interesting element is that Lawrence Beesley was a survivor of the Titanic disaster and provides a realistic account of some of the events leading to and following the sinking of the Titanic. The RMS Titanic was an Olympic class passenger liner that became infamous for its collision with an iceberg and dramatic sinking in 1912. The second of a trio of superliners, she and her sisters, Olympic and Britannic, were designed to provide a three-ship weekly express service and dominate the transatlantic travel business for the White Star Line.Built at the Harland and Wolff shipyard in Belfast, Ireland, Titanic was the largest passenger steamship in the world at the time of her sinking. During Titanic´s maiden voyage (from Southampton, England; to Cherbourg, France; Queenstown (Cobh), Ireland; then New York), she struck an iceberg at 11:40 PM (ship´s time) on Sunday evening April 14, 1912, broke into two pieces, and sank two hours and forty minutes later at 2:20 AM Monday morning.According to the US Senate investigation, 1,523 people perished in the accident, ranking it as one of the worst peacetime maritime disasters in history and by far the most famous. Titanic´s design used some of the most advanced technology available at the time and the ship was popularly believed to be ´´unsinkable´´. It was a great shock that, despite the advanced technology and experienced crew, Titanic sank with a great loss of life. The media frenzy about Titanic´s famous victims, the legends about what happened on board the ship, the resulting changes to maritime law, and the discovery of the wreck in 1985 by a team led by Robert Ballard and Jean-Louis Michel have made Titanic persistently famous in the years since.This account by a survivor of the Titanic disaster was first published in 1912. 1.

Iceberg, right ahead! Only 160 minutes passed between the time a sailor on lookout duty uttered these chilling words and the moment when the mighty ocean liner Titanic totally disappeared into the cold, dark waters of the North Atlantic. This century-old tragedy, which took more than 1,500 lives, still captivates people in the 21st century. Seventy-three years separate the two major Titanic events - the 1912 sinking of the vessel and the dramatic 1985 discovery of the wreck by Robert Ballard. But additional stories about the victims, survivors, rescuers, reporters, investigators, and many others show the far-reaching effects this tragedy had on society. Award-winning author Stephanie Sammartino McPherson has collected numerous personal accounts of the event, including the knighted man who spent the rest of his life in seclusion because he was accused of dishonorable behavior in a lifeboat, the stewardess who survived two shipwrecks and a midocean collision, and the New York Times executive who sent multiple reporters to meet the rescue ship, thus earning a national reputation for his newspaper. She also links the Titanic tragedy to changes in regulations worldwide. After a Senate inquiry and a British trial attempted to assign blame for the disaster, new laws on ship safety were put in place. A group of nations also banded together to form an ice patrol, eventually leading to the formation of the US Coast Guard. Even the most avid Titanic fans will learn something new as McPherson brings the listener up to date on the politics and intrigue still surrounding the wreck - including what modern science can reveal about what really happened to the ship and who was at fault. Prepare to follow the never-ending story of the Titanic into its second century. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Intuitive.

Audie Award, Distinguished Achievement in Production, 2012 Arrogance and innocence, hubris and hope - 24 haunting voices of the Titanic tragedy, as well as the iceberg itself, are evoked in a stunning tour de force. More than 2,000 men, women, and children are on board. Here on the first-class promenade is millionaire John Jacob Astor, who hopes his return from Egypt with his pregnant teen bride will invite a minimum of media attention. And here, in the third-class common room, a beautiful Lebanese refugee, on her way to family in Florida, discovers first love. And there in the distance, shrouded in darkness, an ancient iceberg lies patient, awaiting its encounter. The voices in this wholly unique re-creation of the Titanic disaster span classes and stations, from Margaret (´´the unsinkable Molly”) Brown to Captain E.J. Smith, who went down with his ship; from the lookout and wireless men to a young boy in search of dragons and a gambler in search of fools with money to lose. Slipping in telegraphs, undertaker’s reports, and other historic records, poet Allan Wolf offers a breathtaking, intimate glimpse into the lives of two dozen passengers and crew, told with astounding emotional power. 1.
