The Bermuda Triangle by Charles Berlitz

The Bermuda Triangle is a
best-selling 1974 book by Charles Berlitz which popularized the belief of the
Bermuda Triangle as an area of ocean prone to disappearing ships and
airplanes. The book sold nearly 20 million copies in 30 languages.[1]

In the book, Charles elaborates upon several theories for the purported
disappearances. One of those theories states that the Bermuda Triangle was
actually a by-product of the destruction of Atlantis.

The book was the subject of criticism in Larry Kusche’s 1975 work The
Bermuda Triangle Mystery—Solved, in which Kusche cites errors in the reports
of missing ships, and has also said “If Berlitz were to report that a
boat were red, the chance of it being some other color is almost a
certainty.”[2] Lloyd’s of London has determined the Triangle to be no
more dangerous than any other piece of the ocean, and does not charge unusual
rates of insurance for passage through the area. United States Coast Guard
records confirm this determination. However, tales of missing ships, although
promoted by Berlitz, existed prior to the book’s publication. He first heard
of these tales at his travel agency, wondering why his customers requested to
avoid flying over this region.

The book was produced with the collaboration of Dr. J. Manson Valentine,
who provided photos and illustrations. It was later the basis for a
theatrical film of René Cardona Jr. released in 1978[3] and a Sunn Classic
Pictures documentary by Richard Friedenberg released in 1979.[4]
