Smashing !In the "oven" at this very moment and exactly as you would like. (Are you looking over my shoulder?)
Good luck with it and I very much look forward to it's publication
Mr Halpern, I will definitely keep an eye out for Bissett's memoirs without a doubt. Thanks for that recommendation.Seumas wrote: "Perhaps a professional's analysis on various examples of leadership, the chain of command, basic seamanship on the night of April 14/15 1912."
Tramps and Ladies gives a very insightful look into the question of leadership, the chain of command, and basic seamanship in the early era of the 20th century from one who worked his way up that chain of command. The involvement in the Titanic disaster is but a small part of the overall story. Stepping back earlear, the same author wrote about growing up and apprenticing in the days of sail before moving on to steamships. The name of that first book was Sail Ho! My Early Years at Sea.
I'm actually planning at some point this week on picking up a copy of "Report into the Loss of the SS Titanic" which you of course had a hand in. Very much looking forward to reading it
