Summary:
Accused of cowardice and of dictating the Titanic's excessive speed, Ismay was the first victim of a press hate campaign. He never recovered from the damage to his reputation and never spoke of his beloved ship, the Titanic, again. Wilson explores Ismay's desperate need to tell his story, and to find a way of living with the consciousness of lost honor.
