I was surprised to learn that the iceberg created holes along the seam where it came in contact with hull and that the seam was not ruptured wide open like is reported in some books. Foster is the only author that I know of who points out that many portholes were left open which probably let in much more water than the damage from the iceberg. If the captain had responded immediately instead of being in denial for several minutes, actions could have been taken to slow the sinking and save many more people.
The book is long, but it is very readable and it is filled with detailed information. I highly recommend it!
The rest was very informative. I learned some things that I didn't know and things I suspected all along. Like one iceberg doing in the Titanic. I thought there were a lot more out there than was reported along with a huge field of ice. Maybe that answers the question of why Murdoch committed suicide that night. He essentially destroyed the Titanic. But again, that's my impression of what I read and may not be to anyone else.
Read it for yourselves and you be the judge.
I wouldn't recommend this to anyone, unless they are doing a report on the Titanic.
Would have appreciated more analysis and comments from author.
