We all know the outcome, but this book explores details from many other perspectives.

Eric Larson researched the last crossing of the Lusitania and was able to give the reader insight to the many factors affecting that fateful day. Larson furnishes information about Captain Turner, his extensive experience with sailing ships; the passengers, details about who they were and why they were traveling; The United States, President Wilsons’ distraction; Germany, their use of U boats in the waters around Great Britain and England, their secret Room 40. Larson kept this story moving and interesting, even though we all know how it will end.
