Britain's Lost Tragedies Uncovered, Paperback / softback Book

Britain's Lost Tragedies Uncovered Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


Many disasters become household names due to the enormity of the event, but many others are less well remembered.

A lower death toll and scant media coverage has led to many tragic incidents being forgotten as time marches on, until now.

This new study, collated by Richard M. Jones, is a collection of historically significant but tragic events and their aftermaths.

Richard has compiled disasters occurring variously in the air, at sea, and on or under land, from a London family massacre in the 1800s, to shipwrecks, air crashes, road and rail accidents, gales and fires.

Two locations saw major crashes years apart at the same spot; the notorious New Cross fire sparked accusations of a race-related cover-up; and the horrific Denmark Place fire was barely registered by a press fixated with the Yorkshire Ripper.

This new study shines a light on these disasters once again and will ensure they are not forgotten.
