Second, the Titanic was one of three sister ships, the others being the Olympic and the Britannic. The Britannic also sunk, while serving as a hospital ship, when it hit a mine. A woman who was a stewardess on the Titanic, and survived that, was serving as a nurse on the Britannic when it sank--and also survived that one. Molly Brown had nothing on that girl.
And for all the publicity it still gets, the losses on the Titanic were only about one quarter of the lives lost on the Wilhelm Gustloff, which has the title of worst maritime disaster--and which was due to Soviet bombing. They didn't care if it was a ship full of refugees.
The best book on the Titanic is still, after all these years, Lord's Night to Remember.
