In the course of human events, and of human history, a lot of tragic accidents have happened and among them, the R.M.S. Titanic. The world 's largest cruise ship, at the time, took a deep plunge into the North Atlantic ocean on the night of April 15th, 1912. The horrifying event killed more than 1,500 innocent people on its maiden voyage, and only about 700 survived the wreck. The ship was going from Southampton, U.K. to New York City.

Stroud, UK: The History Press, p.118 few minutes longer, rising to a nearly vertical angle with hundreds of people still clinging to it, before sinking. For many years it was generally believed the ship sank in one piece; however, when the wreck was located many years later, it was discovered that the ship had fully broken in two. All remaining passengers and crew were dipped into lethally cold water of the ocean with a temperature of 28 °F (−2 °C).44 Almost all of those in the water died of cardiac arrest or other causes within 15–30 minutes. There is a supposition that most of the passengers could be saved, if the boats were fully loaded.
The Titanic was beautiful and the biggest ship that was ever built, and almost everybody knows its story. According to Alan Boyle in the website, “10 causes of titanic tragedy”, the Titanic was designed and commissioned by White Star Line(1). Boyle also claim that Titanic wight over 45000 ton(1). In the video “10 Captivating Facts About the Titanic Sinking”, by the group “World 5 List”, it assumed that Titanic length is 206.06 meters, it’s breathes 32 meters, and it’s height is 28.19 meter(0:09). What a gigantic ship Titanic was!
What does one think of when the name Titanic is said? That it was one of perhaps the most tragic events to have ever occurred on the sea? What is certain however is that it is one of the most remembered historical events to have ever occurred on the ocean and it is possible that the words “criminal negligence” come to one’s mind however, people look at it most have no idea of the true reasons the Titanic sank and that is why several people over the years have delved into the mystery of what sank the ship God himself could not. Most believe it to be the one accomplishment of a lone iceberg what most do not know is that there was a fire burning in one of the worst areas a fire could have burned. This is no theory for many eyewitness accounts and logs prove this, there are even photos of where the fire had taken place on the starboard side of the ship.
Fact, out of the 2229 people aboard the Titanic only 706 survived the crash. The Titanic was the biggest ship that had ever been created at the time. Hanson W. Baldwin stated that,’’She was not only the largest ship afloat,but was believed to be unsinkable.’’ He also wrote, ‘’...which made her, men thought, unsinkable.’’ They were very confident that the Titanic could not sink because of its massive size and well designed hull. But it actually came down to the operators of the ship that would be its downfall. While some people 's ignorance brought upon pain and suffering, it also brought out the thoughtfulness and bravery of others.
In 1898, Futility, or The Wreck of the Titan, a novel by American author, Morgan Robertson, was published. The story, about the wreck of the Titan, a massive ship, with dimensions similar to that of the Titanic, by icebergs, while crossing the Atlantic during the month of April, has all the resemblance to that of the Titanic’s. This makes it more than just a coincidence. If we look at some other Titanic facts, one will realize that the disaster was not just a spur-of-the-moment event, but one that was prearranged. Firstly: the night of April 14, 1912 was a moonless and windless one, backed by very calm waters.
1- Introduction. It was the night between the 14th and the 15th of April 1912. The British ocean liner Titanic, described as " unsinkable " by the builders and the ship-owners, sank due to a collision with an iceberg in the Atlantic ocean , ending with a tragedy that cost the lives of 1517 people ( 2223 in total ) . What went wrong ? How can an “unsinkable” ship sank after only five days ?
Japanese Imperial Navy only had a rough estimate of 21,000 men. Japan was outnumbered by many, many soldiers. Japan lost around 20,000 of their men, which was almost their whole army (Andrews). Americans had around 5,900 people killed and 17,400 wounded (Cowley). This was the only battle in which the United States Marine Corps had more casualties than Japan (10).
Waiting for help, Rose took a nap and when she woke up Jack died (James Cameron & Jon Landau 1997). The boat sank to the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean and killed 1,503 people and only 705 people survived. There was several actions people could of taken so Titanic wouldn 't sink. Captain Smith was going too fast and should of slowed down. They spend a lot of money on Titanic and they even said it was an unsinkable ship so then why did it sink?
On January 2, 1987, Stephen Crane’s boat Commodore sank twelve miles off the coast of Daytona Beach, Florida. After much chaos and confusion in abandoning ship, much of the people aboard perished in scattered life boats that capsized, but Crane was lucky enough to be on the solely surviving dinghy. Thirty long hours of paddling through stormy seas later, the boat barely arrived ashore. After this traumatic experience, Crane decided to transform this incident into a short story—one that explores both the literal and the metaphorical meaning of the sinking ship. He observed that the lack of choices many working-class citizens of his time had put them in a sinking ship, in which larger environmental forces destined to harm and suppress the individual
