The best of the Logan Marshall classics have been researched and edited by authors Bruce M. Caplan and Ken Rossignol and presented in this new audiobook. The Titanic's secret fire is explained in great detail. The early days of World War I and the savage sinking of the Lusitania, which caused over 1,000 civilians to die on an unarmed passenger vessel are brought to life. This is the story of the people who survived along with the war efforts that boosted the efforts of the United States, Britain, and France to rally their countries to stand up to the German aggression.

Highly recommend this one! I loved this historical piece by Bruce M. Caplan and Ken Rossignol. From the Titanic's time of basically global peace into the depths of World War One (WW I) including the historic sinking of the Lusitania, this is a great book on the entire lead up to WWI and into the interwar period that follows. Many American historians, like their counterparts in journalism fall into the political trap and forget to tell it the way it was. The documentation process that they are supposed to serve often gets modified it seems - not so with Caplan and Rossignol's historical editing of the original Logan Marshal work, along with the great original war poster art from both the UK and the US. As a masters student of history, I highly recommend this book, not only is it an entertaining read, the history that is described is accurate, based on fairness and real literary principles. They did not sugar coat the facts, for example they covered the use of unrestricted submarine warfare, it was to have a major impact on World War I and it was one of the main reasons why America joined the war in the 1st place. Maritime blockades were also a fact of WWI, key also were early war sully chain and the always present economic factors, even including widespread abuses in factories including child labor. This book belongs in any history buffs library.
yes, and I did while on a long flight...
