Futility

Futility

14 years before the Titanic sank, a book named “Futility” (or “The Wreck of the Titan”) told the story of an unsinkable ship named “Titan” which also struck an iceberg on its starboard side in the North Atlantic on an April night. The fictitious ship closely matched the Titanic’s length, weight, speed, capacity, and lack of lifeboats.
