The tragic consequences of inaction

The sinking of the RMS Titanic has become notorious in maritime history, and still resonates in popular culture thanks in no small part to the 1997 film ‘Titanic’. It remains one of the worst peacetime sinkings in history claiming around 1,500 lives, many perishing in the frigid Atlantic waters.
