Summary
On May 7, 1915, the German U-boat 20 torpedoed and sank the "unarmed" passenger liner Lusitania off the coast of Ireland, killing some 1200 men, women, and children--many of them Americans. The world raged at the barbarity of the Kaiser and the German people, and the act did much to precipitate the later entrance of the United States into World War I. This book claims that the Lusitania was unstable, improperly designed, badly staffed, and loaded with munitions for the Allies--and that the British Admiralty, with high American complicity, to an extent created the situation in which the ship could be sunk
