The Last Voyage of the Lusitania, by A A and M Hoeling
The Last Voyage of the Lusitania
A A and Mary Hoeling
On 7 May 1915, the Lusitania sank off the Irish coast within 15 minutes of being torpedoed by a German submarine. Never before had an unarmed passenger ship been attacked without warning. 1198 lives were lost and the sinking of this ship was one of the factors that persuaded the Americans to join WW2, for 124 Americans went down with the ship including some eminent individuals such as Alfred G Vanderbilt and Charles Frohman. This book chronicles the last days of the ship from before she left New York until she was lost in the Irish Sea.
