Preston, an Oxford-trained historian, brilliantly captures the political and personal impact of the 1915 sinking of the British liner Lusitania by a German U-boat. This "captivating and conscientious narrative" is riveting, offering new insights into the controversial event, which helped draw America into World War I.

Not as long as other accounts but good summary of the events surrounding the sinking of the Lusitania. I do wish audiobooks would learn NOT to play loud background music over the narrator's voice.
