Raging fires. Pounding waves. Heroic rescues. Daring escapes. Dover's expert naval historian profiles history's most important passenger vessel disasters, from the Lusitania's 1915 torpedoing to the Oriana's destruction by a typhoon off China's coast in 2005. Miller also gives life to the tragic stories of the Morro Castle, Normandie, Andrea Doria, Europa, and other ill-fated ships.
