The Legacy of the White Star Line

by

Timothy PD Turner

Timothy Turner has launched his fully illustrated scolastic books on the history of the White Star Line and the Cunard Line. They are available to purchase in paperback or kindle format available through Amazon.

"Legacy of the White Star Line" begins with an overview of their fleet. Next, Titanic’s construction, layout, opulent furnishings, passenger experiences and the central personalities are introduced. Important aspects of her maiden voyage are revisited; the first ice warnings, lookouts, striking the iceberg, sinking, partial lifeboat evacuation and the lessons learned from the Inquiries held in Britain and America. After touching on the ‘Titanic’s Curse’, forewarnings, and myths of 1912, it moves to Dr Robert Ballard’s dramatic discovery and exploration of her in 1985. This reawakened interest, and in 1997, James Cameron's film “Titanic” proved an outstanding success.


RMS Olympic and HMHS Britannic are also reviewed together with the heroic rescue of stranded passengers from the hospital ship, HMHS Rohilla, which hit rocks in Whitby in October 1914 during a violent gale.
