August 17, 2018. Over the years, there has been widespread speculation on how much time separated Titanic‘s official shipboard time, on the night of the disaster, from time in New York, Southampton, London, and other areas ashore. Much of what has been postulated over the years is based on conjecture or just plain bad assumptions. After months of painstaking research, however, our international team of maritime historians has now released our latest peer review article, “Time & Again: Titanic‘s Final Hours”. It presents an astonishing amount of new material on the subject, including unprecedented finds on the Magneta system of shipboard clocks and how they did, and did not, work.

January 26, 2017. Recently, there has been a wave of media coverage on the Titanic, related to a new program entitled Titanic: The New Evidence. The underlying theory is that new evidence shows that the Titanic disaster was caused by a coal bunker fire. Although widely covered, the claim is historically inaccurate. I was privileged to work with a worldwide team of historians to create the new peer review article, Titanic: Fire & Ice (Or What You Will)”, to rebut these claims with the facts.

Lusitania's maiden voyage arrival in New York was an extremely well photographed event. This photo shows a splendid angle as Lusitania steamed up the North River toward Pier 54. What's very interesting is that two photos were taken from almost this same angle, and within a few seconds of each other; this photo ended up in a period published source. However, the two photos are not identical.

Our upcoming two-volume book, "Lusitania: An Illustrated Biography" will contain breathtaking colour ... See more

I recently realized that I had quite a few of the bookmarks from the very first 2007 edition of "Lusitania: An Illustrated Biography of the Ship of Splendour" (yes, the self-published one that preceded the 2010 and 2015 volumes from Amberley Books!).
