The Man Who Sank Titanic

Robert Hichens has gone down in history as the man who was given the famous order “Hard-a-Starboard” in a desperate attempt to steer the Titanic away from an iceberg—but failed. Following this, his falling out with the ‘Unsinkable Molly Brown’ over his actions in lifeboat 6 saw him branded a coward and his name indelibly tarnished. Robert was one of the most important witnesses at both the US and British Inquiries, answering hundreds of gruelling questions. His testimony became the ‘traditional’ story of the tragedy people know today. In The Man Who Sank Titanic, Robert’s great-granddaughter Sally Nilsson seeks to set the record straight and reveal the true character of the man her family knew. This is one man’s story of survival, betrayal and determination. Product information:
