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.

Titanic - The Most Complete Story Ever Told: Matthew Vollbrecht
Titanic: A Survivor´s Story:A Survivor´s Story Archibald Gracie
A stirring and remarkable story, this novel tells the tale of the intertwined lives of Dick Williams and Karl Behr who survived the sinking of the Titanic and went on to have Hall of Fame tennis careers. Two years before they faced each other in the quarterfinals of the U.S. Nationals - the modern-day U.S. Open - the two men boarded the infamous ship as strangers. Dick, shy and gangly, was moving to America to pursue a tennis career and attend Harvard. Karl, a dashing tennis veteran, was chasing after Helen, the love of his life. The two men remarkably survived the sinking of the great vessel and met aboard the rescue ship Carpathia. But as they reached the shores of the United States, both men did all they could to distance themselves from the disaster. An emotional and touching work, this novel brings one of the most extraordinary sports stories to life in literary form. This real-life account - with an ending seemingly plucked out of a Hollywood screenplay - weaves the themes of love, tragedy, history, sport and perseverance. 1. Language: English.
