9780811709897: The Lusitania: The Life, Loss, and Legacy of an Ocean Legend

8-page photo section 6 x 9 Unravels the mystery of the tragic event that drew the U.S. into World War I Provides rare first-person accounts from survivors of the disaster The sinking of the Lusitania has long been perceived as the reason the United States went to war in 1917. But according to Daniel Allen Butler, author of Unsinkable, the story is much more complex. Butler makes extensive use of primary accounts, letting the participants tell their stories in their own words. More than simply chronicling the events leading up the sinking, The Lusitania follows the rescue and fate of the people aboard her; recounts the inquiry after the sinking, led by none other than Lord Mersey of the Titanic inquiry fame; and explains why and how the sinking of the Lusitania by a German U-20 set the tone for the twentieth century's interpretation of "total war." Daniel Allen Butler, the son of a former merchant marine seaman, is the author of Unsinkable: The Full Story of RMS Titanic (0-8117-1814-X). He currently resides in in Atlantic Beach, Florida.
