The luxurious steamship Baron Gautsch is the pride of Austrian Merchant Navy. It is the best, the safest, the fastest means of transport of the Habsburg Empire: it is considered the Austro-Hungarian Titanic. On 13th August 1914, United Kingdom declares war to Austria. On the very same day, Baron Gautsch is travelling to Trieste: it carries not only soldiers and reservists, but also rich tourists and important people of the Empire who are returning to Vienna, because of the war. At 14.45 Gautsch hits a mine and sinks in less than 5 minutes, off the Istrian coasts. 177 people died out of 240 travellers and 66 members of the crew.
Which was the cause of the disaster? A sabotage or a mine put there by the Austrian Navy itself? What was Baron Gautsch carrying? Maybe huge quantities of gold? Where does the truth lie?
