Added are the viewpoints of the fictional characters German-American Kate Sterner, a New York dress designer who is taking the voyage to England with her English fiancé Thomas Colburn, a wealthy industrialist with June wedding plans, and Unterofizier Gunter Lott, the head torpedo mechanic on U-20 with family problems back home. All are swept into the 9/11 of their time in a fateful encounter which left twelve hundred men, women and children dead in an historical incident that rivals the Titanic in scope.
