Product Description

About the Author

After a life-long interest in the Titanic, Robin Gardiner published Riddle of the Titanic in 1995. The feedback from that convinced him that further investigation of the subject was inevitable. He has continued to put forward his reasons for still believing in his original conspiracy theory, that Titanic and her sister ship were switched and that the disaster of April 1912 was not entirely accidental. He is a keen amateur engineer and likes nothing better than restoring and riding old motorbikes.

Common sense aside, there's also a welter of evidence available that, point-by-point, blows the conspiracy theory out of the water.
One factor in particular however (photos of which were, ironically, featured prominently by Gardiner in his 1998 book) prove beyond any doubt that the ships were not switched. There was a subtle but unmistakeable difference in the bow plating around the anchor; two plate-edges were welded together on Titanic, but left unwelded on the Olympic. Pre & post disaster photos of Olympic show the unwelded plate-edge around the anchor.
It's as conclusive as fingerprints. It cannot be argued against, and the entire switch theory crumbles immediately. Done & dusted.
There are of course other features which damn Gardiner's theory. The precise porthole arrangements on C-deck; the piping on the funnels differed; the lettering TITANIC filmed & photographed on the bow wreck in 1987.... It's all there.

Format: Hardcover
The Great Titanic Conspiracy by Robin Gardiner. Earns two points for an interesting speculation and conspiracy theories are very popular entertainment. Some of the photographs in my copy of the book are of poor quality and have been incorrectly captioned. Details such as describing David Lloyd George as Prime Minister at or about 1907 are incorrect. DLG was a Cabinet Minister at that time and did not become Prime Minister until 1916. The cruiser HMS Tiger said to have been rammed in 1908 was in fact a 300 ton destroyer and not a cruiser. Pedantic point I know, but get it right if you are intending to be taken seriously. The main reason against the conspiracy theory and never mind the technical issues that can be raised for or against is that given the numbers of people involved at some point along the way then surely someone could not have resisted spilling the beans later on. Or were they all sworn to secrecy!!!

The idea that Olympic was switched with its newer sister ship, Titanic, is incorrect.

Robin Gardiner should review the following evidence and remove this book from publication.

Photos of the newly built hull sliding into the water, for respective ships - Olympic in white, Titanic in grey (freely available on the web) clearly show a distinct 'finger print' porthole configuration at the stern (rear-left) for Titanic, compared to her sister Olympic. This enables clear identification of the ship that sank from maiden voyage photos, as Titanic - the 2nd hull that was built.
