    The Tragedy of the Titanic

    On April 14, 1912, a "night to remember," the unthinkable occured: the Titanic, the greatest, most celebrated ship ever built–considered by many to be virtually unsikable–struck an iceberg in the North Atlantic and disappeared beneath the frigid waves on the fifth day of her maiden voyage. This book draws on the latest research, rarely heard first-person accounts, and a gripping narrative timeline to tell this heartbreaking story of heroism and horror upon the high seas.

    The USS Greeneville Submarine Disaster

    The USS Greenville's mission on February 9, 2001, was a simple one: take sixteen civilian guests out for a pleasure cruise in the waters south of Oahu, entertain them at lunch in the galley, impress them with a demonstration of what a nuclear-powered attack submarine can do. Using eyewitness accounts, court of inquiry testimony and findings, and a narrative timeline of those frantic minutes beneath the sea, Eric Fein tells the tragic story of the Greenville's collision with the fishing vessel, the Ehime Maru, that resulted in the deaths of nine Japanese fishermen and students.
