One hundred years ago today, the British ocean liner, Lusitania, was sunk by a German U-boat (submarine) off the Irish coast. One thousand, one hundred ninety-eight passengers were lost including more than one hundred Americans. It was an event that started the United States toward entry into War War I.
Nonfiction writer, Erik Larson, recently published Dead Wake: The Last Crossing of the Lusitania to mark the anniversary. We have several copies of the physical book [940.4514 LAR], a 3M ebook, and an audiobook [AB/CD 940.4514 LAR]. We also have other writers' exploration of the sinking of the Lusitania in the 940.4 section.
