An enthralling account of the Lusitania's sinking that examines the myth and mystery of the maritime disaster. The story of the Lusitania is remarkable in the annals of maritime history. State of the art when she went into service, the first express liner equipped with steam turbines, the ship restored British supremacy on the North Atlantic passenger routes and became a commercial success. Her sinking in May 1915 by a German U-boat was widely publicized, and from that day the ship's history has been filled with legend and speculation. David Ramsay unravels those myths to give a clear and enthralling account of the people involved, potentates and presidents, ambassadors and ministers of state, bankers, shipping magnates, spies, and not least the captain, William Turner. Based on detailed research, this new book includes an extensive, exciting account of the history and circumstances surrounding the sinking. Ramsay's compelling style will intrigue the general reader as much as it will the historian and enthusiast. Map, 18 illustrations.
