No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


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 'mystery' ship, but to no avail. With 1,500 souls on board, Titanic foundered, but what of the mystery ship? At the subsequent inquiries in both the USA and UK, Captain Stanley Lord and his vessel, the Californian, were accused of ignoring Titanic's plight. This is the story of the Californian and of her actions that night and Thomas Williams and Rob Kamps prove that she could not have been the mystery ship that promised hope and salvation for a fleeting time to those on board the sinking Titanic.
