The Nazi Titanic

The Incredible Untold Story of a Doomed Ship in World War II

The Nazi Titanic demonstrates that even within an area so deeply researched as the Second World War, researcher willing to do some digging can still uncover significant untold history. Well-known to South Florida audiences as a master story-teller, historian, and political commentator, Robert Watson lives up to his reputation in revealing an episode in WWII previously unknown even to scholars of the Holocaust. Beyond the mere telling of the tale, Watson offers a compelling account of the Cap Arcona's history and the personalities critical to its final tragic voyage in the last moments of the war. Watson offers that rare combination of meticulous research and compelling narrative, making The Nazi Titanic a compelling text for both scholars of the era and those with a more general interest.
