“The extraordinary part of this narrative about the greatest marine disaster of the ages — greatest because so criminally encompassed — is that it indulges in no heroics, that it dramatizes none of the horrors of the scene, which might easily have been forgiven for the sake of truth. It gains in vividness, in the actual details of what occurred by the absence of this blurring process of emotion which a more excitable chronicler would have given. Charles E. Lauriat tells what happens, from the moment the torpedo struck to his arrival in London, with a continuity of incident, with a clearness of detail, that is impressive.... Mr. Lauriat's narrative is rich in many an episode that brings the terrific suffering and endurance of the passengers vividly to one’s sense of what the tragedy was like on its pathetic side. How much he centered in the thrilling experiences he describes, one comes to realize by what he tells of the other brave men and women who were sharing his perils." — Boston Transcript.

About the Author:

Charles E. Lauriat, Jr. was a bookseller who specialized in rare books. His memoir of his voyage on the Lusitania became one of the best-known accounts of the tragedy. He lived in Boston, Massachusetts.

Review:

Two distinct kinds of interest attach to this clear-headed account of the Lusitania horror as seen by an influential Bostonian that of his own remarkable experiences, and that of his criticisms of Cunard officials. His testimony as to the discipline of the officers and crew is in conflict with the subsequent findings of Lord Mersey’s court.”
New York Times (reviewed December 12, 1915)

Charles Lauriat's detailed narrative as an eyewitness to the sinking of the Lusitania resonates even today. His heroic actions resulted in many being saved. Over 100 years later, history lovers are still captivated by his tale.”
Mike Poirier, co-author of Into the Danger Zone: Sea Crossings of the First World War, historical consultant to Erik Larsen’s bestseller Dead Wake
