The riddle of titanic

On April 14 2012, a hundred years will lie between us and that terrible night that witnessed the sinking of the Titanic. How could the flagship of the White Star Line, the vessel they called the “Unsinkable” and which was equipped with the finest technology of the age, fall victim to such a tragedy and disappear into the icy waters of the Atlantic in less than three hours? This is what we try to discover along with P H Narjeoloet, the world expert on diving on the Titanic. He has taken part in every expedition and has worked with James Cameron. He is French and gave us his exclusive contribution.

Le drame de La Monique marque toujours profondément la société calédonienne. Dans ce contexte, une association tente de retrouver La...

Nothing has been forgotten; it features adventures, mysteries, a fortune, prison, politics and con artists – despite which, the fact is that this seafaring detective story relates nothing but the truth! It begins in the 19th century, involving counts and duchesses from various countries in Europe, the King of Sardinia and even the King of France in person. The epilogue deals with more recent years and looks at the role of the French and Italian authorities, English conmen and a French...
