See below for new books from George Behe!

Well over three quarters of a century have passed since the White Star liner Titanic grazed an iceberg and went down in mid-Atlantic with over fifteen hundred passengers and crewmen still on board her. Fascination with the disaster has continued unabated ever since - and in recent years has increased dramatically as a result of the discovery of the wreck site by Dr. Robert Ballard. New books and articles about the tragedy appear with predictable regularity, and casual observers might be excused for opining that every possible nuance of the tragedy has already been explored exhaustively.

Yes and no. Although most (but not all) key facts about the Titanic disaster have been reasonably well-known for years, there is still a vast amount of fascinating information about the sinking that has never found its way into the literature documenting the tragedy.

Which brings us to the purpose of this web site.

The author hopes to use this site to present (on a semi-regular basis) "chapters" containing little-known information about the Titanic disaster that has been overlooked by historians ever since the events in question took place. The material presented here has been culled from a wide variety of sources: period newspapers, diaries, letters, personal memoirs and primary source documents held in archives on both sides of the Atlantic. Each chapter will vary in length, but will (hopefully) provide the reader with interesting vignettes of the Titanic disaster that - until now - have lain lost and forgotten among dusty records of those steadily-receding events that make up our common past.

The author hopes that researchers will find this material useful and that it will further our understanding of the events surrounding the sinking of the passenger liner Titanic.
