Dead Wake: The Last Crossing of the Lusitania - Erik Larson

"Germany's proclamation outraged President Wilson; on February 10, 1915...warned that he would hold Germany 'to strict accountability' for any incident in which an American ship was sunk or Americans were injured or killed.  He stated, further, that America would 'take any steps it might be necessary to take to safeguard American lives and property and to secure to American citizens the full enjoyment of their acknowledged rights on the high seas."



I'll admit to not knowing more than the basics about the Lusitania, but I am already seeing exactly how huge it's implications are going to be.  I'm really curious to see the ideas that are going to be presented by Larson.
