Lusitania: Murder on the Atlantic
On May 17th 1915, the Lusitania was holed by a single torpedo from a German U-boat. Just 18 minutes later, the liner had sunk. 1,200 of the 1,900 passengers and crew perished.
Bitter controversy surrounded the sinking: was the ship as innocent as she seemed? Had the British government secretly used a passenger ship to carry explosives? Worse still, had Winston Churchill deliberately sacrificed the Lusitania to bring America into the war?
