Think the Titanic was the world’s greatest marine disaster? Or maybe it was the Lusitania? Would you be surprised to learn that the M/S Wilhelm Gustloff a German ship that sank in the Baltic Sea cost twice as many lives as both British ships combined?  And chances are you've never heard of the loss of the luxury liner Cap Arcona with approximately 4,500 lives.  Or the Thielbek with about 2,800 dead.  On the stricken General Von Steuben 3,500 suffered death by drowning.  On the Gustloff alone more died than in the combine sinking's of the entire British and Spanish amada's in the 16 century.  Yet very little has been written about it.

HERE is your chance.
