Captain Smith was not a hero

All films show Captain Smith as a true hero in the sinking. There are even stories that complete after the sinking of the Titanic, he could be seen swimming with a child in his arms to save her from death. According to the BBC website, several statues erected in his honor in England.
But to some experts about the shipwreck, all the heroism and efforts to save the passengers may not have been as real as well. In the first minutes after the accident, rescue boats with space for 65 people left the ship with less than 30 people and did not return to rescue other victims.

In what way was he not a hero? He was in shock, but he did actively seek assistance and rescue throughout the sinking and later released the men from their duties when it was near the end. I think he was a fine man and a hero during the sinking.
