More About the Author

I have always had an interest in history but have sometimes been disappointed at the dryness with which books on it can be written. History needs to come alive to make it real and not appear to be some distant and remote subject of little relevance to our world. That is why I try my best to bring out the drama in the subjects that I write about whilst at the same time trying to ensure that the books I am involved with are based entirely on fact.

I started writing about twelve years ago and have been constantly amazed at the things I didn't know about the subjects I research to write about. My main interest is in medieval history which is why my early books were mainly on the Crusades. However I am always interested in new discoveries so I do find myself looking at new areas all the time - for example I am currently writing a book on the Dambusters.

I hope that those that read my books will at least share some of my enthusiasm for the subjects that I write about and will also understand something of the importance of history to the world that we live in today.

I am very lucky in that I have a job that takes me around the world into lots of places that I wouldn't otherwise visit. This is what for example inspired me to write about the Mongols - I worked in Mongolia for a while and fell in love with the place. Most of my work is in slightly offbeat places which is great for introducing me to places of great beauty and histories of great interest that I wouldn't otherwise know about.

I look forward to writing for many years and am always happy to hear from anyone who has read my books with any positive or negative comments - I am always trying to get better at what I do. Thanks for taking the time to read this.

Format: Hardcover
This new book was a welcome addition to the many differing stories about the legend called 'Titanic' What made it one of the best was the attention to detail that the author investigated and the very balenced view of the historic tragedy.
If you are interested in the views of the survivors, then this is the book for you. If however you want detail of the ship and it's story, this is not the book for you. A GREAT read and one I shall remember my whole life. My thanks to Mr Bartlett.

Format: Hardcover
This is one of the best books I've read on the Titanic for quite a while. And for someone who currently to date owns 40 books about the Titanic, I found out information that I didn't previously know (like exactly what a collapsible lifeboat was.)

The book is well written, and each chapter deals with one section of time, whether it be half hour intervals or hour intervals. It goes into a lot more detail about the people actually onboard, including information about the little known French boys, whose father abducted them and gave them false names. And the 13 month old boy who was discovered and buried, but not named, until advances in DNA testing came about. It also goes into extensive details about the conflicting reports that passengers and crew gave about exactly what went on during the events of the 14th April. Obviously, some of these details came to light years after the disaster, and so the people could be forgiven for failing to remember exactly. But there were a couple of glaring inconsistencies - one passenger saying that he swam 200 yards to one lifeboat after the Titanic sank, and another passenger saying he swam three quarters of a mile to the SAME lifeboat. Yes, the water was freezing cold, and the supposedly unsinkable ship had gone from beneath them, but there's quite a difference between 200 yards and three quarters of a mile.

The other good thing about this book was that the author included a chapter about what happened to some of the notable survivors after the events. I was shocked to discover that Frederick Fleet had hung himself after a "domestic dispute" which resulted in him being made homeless.

The only thing that bothered me about this book was the chapter concerning the court hearings after the disaster.

Format: Hardcover
I found this book to be both sad and gripping at the same time. It is very well researched and goes into great detail on both the experiences of the passengers and the the harrowing events of that faithfull night. I have read many books on this subject and found this one moved me emotionally more than any of the others. You cannot help but feel the pain and fear of each person mentioned. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to read the human side of the disaster.

This book would have been far better than it is if it had been written with more care. It reads like a first draft, and doesn't seem to have been copy-edited at all: it's full of grammatical errors, solecisms and typos, and there are quite a few factual mistakes. It's interesting, all right (though it does re-hash quite a lot of familiar ground), but - for me, at least - it was spoiled by so many avoidable blemishes.
