Conan Doyle, George Bernard Shaw and the Titanic
Tomorrow marks the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic.
Most of us are familiar with the story. In 1912, on its maiden voyage, the ocean liner struck an iceberg and sank. Because there were not enough lifeboats over 1,500 lives were lost.
A little-known fact is that after the disaster Conan Doyle and George Bernard Shaw had a very public disagreement about how the disaster was characterized in the press.
