Launched on the eve of war in February 1914, Britannic would never see service on the White Star Line's express service for which she was built. Instead, His Majesty's Hospital Ship Britannic became vital to the thousands of injured and sick troops who needed transporting back to Britain from the Mediterranean theatre of war. However, her life was cut short when she was suddenly wracked by a mysterious explosion on 21 November 1916 and sank in less than an hour - three times faster than her sister ship Titanic - and yet, thanks to the improvements in safety heralded by the tragedy of her sister, 1,032 of 1,062 on board survived. In this updated and expanded edition of The Unseen Britannic, Simon Mills incorporates previously unseen material to tell a tale of heroism in the First World War and a remarkable ship, which is finally beginning to emerge from the shadow of the Titanic. SIMON MILLS is a long-standing camera technician of the UK film industry. During his career he has also researched numerous documentaries on historical and maritime subjects, and is a published author on all three Olympic-class ships. He has also written a number of articles for the well-respected Titanic Commutator. His company has the UK legal title to the wreck of HMHS Britannic. He lives in Berkshire. 9780752497716 01042020 02 RRP including tax GB GBP 25.00 0.00 25.00 This price includes a tax element GB 10 Not yet available 01042020 8 BERT GARD Y Despite being the largest of the legendary Olympic-class trio, Britannic is often overlooked in comparison to Olympic and Titanic.
