- Secrets & Scandal
"..a book that shocks..."
After an exhaustive two-year search for the truth about the events and aftermath of this terrible Submarine disaster in Liverpool Bay, June 1939, David Roberts has at last found some shocking hitherto unpublished details. The sinking of Thetis costs 99 men their lives and is still today the worst submarine disaster in British History. The book contains interviews with relatives of victims; sons, daughters, brothers, sisters and those very rare ladies, living widows.
Also here are never before seen documents from the time; Offers of outside help, Secret navy reports and even descriptions of bodies for identification.
Why did the Official Inquiry blame nobody, explaining it away as 'an unfortunate sequence of events'?
Why did the civil action on behalf of the widow's fail?
Did the Admiralty cover it up? How much did Churchill know?
How were those left behind treated?
A huge publicly subscribed disaster fund was collected for the
relatives. How was this managed and distributed? Who got what and why? What ever happened
to the money that was left?
