Titanic and the Californian by Thomas B. Williams

Book Description

Ninety-five years ago, as the Titanic slowly sank, a 'mystery' ship was seen as she slipped below the waves. Thinking it would be their salvation, rockets were fired from Titanic to attract the unknown ship, but to no avail. With 1,500 souls on board, Titanic foundered, but what of the mystery ship? At the subsequent inquires in both the USA and the UK, Captain Stanley Lord and his vessel, the Californian, were accused of ignoring the Titanic's distress calls. Ever since, controversy has reigned over whether the Californian was the ship that ignored Titanic's plight. The author, Thomas B. Williams (an investigative journalist), unearthed the required 'new and important evidence' which prompted the British Government to re-open the case surrounding Captain Lord and the Californian and effectively proved that the much maligned captain and his ship could not have been the mystery ship seen from the decks of the doomed Titanic.
