The Lusitania Story: The Atrocity that Shook the World

The Lusitania Story is the complete story of this most famous ocean liner, told for the first time in a single volume. The Lusitania is today most remembered for controversy surrounding her loss by a German submarine attack in 1915, during the First World War. But this book also tells of her life before that cataclysmic event. It tells of the ground-breaking advances in maritime engineering that she represented, as well as a hitherto unheard of degree of opulence. 

This book also takes a close look at the disaster which befell her and, with the help of leading experts, the authors examine the circumstances of her loss and try to determine why this magnificent vessel was lost in a mere 18 minutes.

“In my opinion, this book is the most complete, most sensitive, and yet most concise history of the life and death of the great ship, RMS Lusitania and the principal people involved in her story". Gregg Bemis - Lusitania's owner and ongoing surveyor
