In the early hours of May 29, 1914, the Canadian Pacific Ship EMPRESS OF IRELAND plunged to the bottom of the St. Lawrence River taking 840 passengers to their deaths. It was the worst disaster in the golden age of transatlantic travel as more passengers went down with the EMPRESS OF IRELAND than with either TITANIC or LUSITANIA. Forgotten Empress reveals the complete history of this ship; her death throes; the official Inquiry; salvage efforts; and the unusual connection between the Captain of the EMPRESS OF IRELAND and the infamous London cellar murderer Dr. Crippen.

David Zeni's world-wide research has made him a recognized authority on the EMPRESS OF IRELAND. His early fascination with maritime affairs, including the TITANIC disaster, prompted him to complete U.S. Navy ROTC training at Pennsylvania State University. He served aboard the nuclear missile submarine USS TECUMSEH during the Cold War and was an administrator in the Defense Logistics Agency and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. He belongs to the TITANIC Historical Society, the Steamship Historical Society of America, the British TITANIC Society, the Ocean Liner Museum, and the Ocean Liner Society. A resident of Cape Cod, Zeni has lectured about the EMPRESS OF IRELAND aboard QE2 and ROTTERDAM VI.Review:
