About the Author

Steve Hall lives in the small coastal town of Angels Beach in New South Wales, Australia. He is a renowned Titanic visual historian; having collected, studied and researched the ship's photographic record for over three decades. He has consulted to the media, auction houses and museums around the world and holds one of the largest held private collections of Titanic photographs in the world. He has co-authored several landmark books on the subject, including Titanic: The Ship Magnificent Volumes 1 & 2 (2008), Titanic in Photographs (2011) and Report Into The Loss of the SS Titanic: A Centennial Reappraisal (2012). He retired from the information technology industry several years ago and devotes his spare time to writing a series of children's novels. Bruce Beveridge has been a history buff for many years, centreing on early civilisations, the Crusades, and famous ships. He is also the senior historical archivist for his local community library and spends his time away from Titanic working on local history projects. Bruce has established a reputation in Titanic community as being one of the foremost visual and technical historians of teh Olympic-class ships. He has advised on Titanic's visual and technical specifications for exhibitions, professional modeling firms, the Danbury Mint, the auction firm of Henry Aldridge and Son and other organisations requiring specialised consultation on the ship. Bruce's highly sought-after General Arrangement plans of the ship, released in 2003, were the most highly detailed and accurate plans released to date and were subsequently used by dive teams investigating the wreck. Bruce's research on the ship ultimately led to the book Titanic: The Ship Magnificent, a two-volume tome coordinated and co-authored with Steve Hall, Scott Andrews and Daniel Klistorner and which has become the defining reference for information on the ship. Art Braunschweiger has had a long-standing interest in maritime and naval history, focusing on the British Navy of the period 1750-1820, World War II submarine warfare in the Pacific, and the Atlantic convoys of World War II. He is an accomplished ship model builder and, along with Bruce Beveridge, is a trustee of the Titanic Research and Modeling Association. Art also assisted in writing and researching Titanic: The Ship Magnificent and Titanic in Photographs. He devotes his spare time to ship model building and beekeeping.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Factual Read 16 May 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed reading this book. It furnishes the reader with a great deal of knowledge about the construction and overall design of the Olympic class Liners. It dispels the rumour of conspiracy by the flooding the reader with technical information. A very informative and enjoyable read. My only criticism is that the technical information broadside becomes a little overwhelming towards the end of the book. The authors seems to repeat a lot technical description which in my opinion is not necessary. I would highly recommend to any who are interested in shipbuilding or the RMS Titanic or her sister ships, Olympic and Britannic.

Thoroughly enjoyed this book. From start to finish. It goes into great detail of all three ships, not just the conspiracy theories. I can't recommend it enough!

4.0 out of 5 stars Very mind boggling! 30 Mar 2014
By Gemma
Format:Kindle Edition
Been a while since I read it but what I remember is reading it and by the end thinking 'omg is it true?' Very true towards the end I was amazed at the amount of evidence there is and actually was questioning myself but sadly I don't want to believe it as I'm sure some other fans will relate to. That's the only reason I didn't rate it 5 as it took over my mind for quite a while. Still heavily recommended get prepared for something unbelievable!

5.0 out of 5 stars Conspiracy or what? 14 Jan 2013

Which ever ship went down - a ship sank taking a lot of unnecessary lives. There will always be accusations. Make your own mind up. Very interesting theories.
