Remembering the Titanic tragedy

Just before midnight on April 14, 1912, the RMS Titanic struck an iceberg and sank in less than three hours in the early hours of April 15. Now, on the 98th anniversary, a new book adds new details to the drama.

The much-chronicled maiden voyage of the "unsinkable" ocean liner resulted in the death of 1,517 of the 2,223 people on board. The ship had a total lifeboat capacity of 1,178 people.

The book, "101 Things You Thought You Knew About The Titanic ... But Didn't," claims a near collision as the ship set off from the docks could have averted the sinking and that the crew did not send out a distress signal until 45 minutes after the iceberg collision.
