On the nigth of 14/15 April 1912, the Titanic, on her maiden voyage, sailed into history. Ramming an iceberg at speed, many of those aboard drowned or froze to death when she sank, with only a mere 700 passangers and crew rescued bu the Cunard liner «Carpathia». Fifteen hundred died in one of the worst peacetime maritime accidents in a collision that was totally avoidable. Too few lifeboats had been provided, the ship was steaming har into an area of icebergs and few of the passengers and crew believed that she could sink. From the moment sehe hit the iceberg, Titanic was doomed and many of her crew knew it. Within three hpurs she was gone, all that remained was the detritus of disaster and the tortures souls of those who survived.
