This is the best book I've read this year. It is superbly ordered, carefully constructed, truthful, and stunning. The only complaint to make is the slight and understandable bias toward Captain Arthur Rostron, in contrast to the damning conclusions regarding Captain Stanley Lord. The author, in my opinion quite rightly, pulls no punches with regards to the unseamanlike, inhumane, and frankly disgraceful action/inaction by Stanley Lord on the night of April 15, 1912. Though the language throughout can be sensationally inclined, the case made by Daniel Allen Butler is, pardon the pun, watertight. An outstanding read.
