3.0 out of 5 starsTragedies of war
Reviewed in the United States on October 5, 2014
This was an in-depth short history about the sinking of the Lusitania prior to world war two. While it did give an excellent account of the sinking I didn't think it did as good a job on the details of the fallout.

A sort collection of facts and the history surrounding the sinking of the Lusitania by German U-Boat prior to World War One makes an interesting a vital story. This book was not particularly scholarly in its' approach to history, but it presented the salient facts about this disaster in a believable fashion. The historic setting of this tragedy is the backdrop for this account that really played an enormous role in American History. It really was the catalyst that propelled America into the war, and I think it missed an opportunity to capitalize on the significance of the event. I think this event has a far larger story than is recorded in this book, but it is still an interesting read that records the highlights reasonably well.
5.0 out of 5 starsAll I wanted to know about the Lusitania
Reviewed in the United States on March 18, 2015
This short book contains everything I wanted to know about the Lusitania. I did not want to read a lengthy book describing world events and WWI. I flew though it in two sittings and found it to be a nice assembly of quotes and background information.
