    My first Larson book

    Probably the easiest way to say what I thought of this book is to say that since I've read two more of Larson's books. I think I still like this one the best. The sinking of the Lusitania had a big impact on world events, moreso than the other two books that I've read of his (Devil in the White City and Midnight in the Garden of Beasts) and I think that provides a better scope for his work than those other books. WWI gets forgotten, but the machinations that went on during it, including the use of submarine warfare have had effects that we are still feeling today. This book which provides a look into what all went into the sinking of the Lusitania provides some much needed color to a small part of a huge conflict that was very easily read.

    Great read

    Larson writes a great book, and this is no exception. He makes it personal by telling us the stories of survivors and victims. There are still questions about the tragedy but you are left in a better position to ask the questions. I will re-read this title.

    Dead Wake

    Fascinating sequence of historical events using biographical information of numerous actual travellers. Information on German submarines and officers, a real bonus. Again, reality far more interesting than fiction. The book is hard to out down. A gem.

    Fascinating but long.

    Long and detailed but very interesting. The author did incredible research about the passengers and their stories. Captain Turner's story was gripping but was disappointed to not learn more about his wife and children. Interesting side story about President Wilson and his love life. Eye-opener about the secret intelligence-gathering by the British. Another sad telling of politicians using innocent people to further their desire for war. Copyright 2015.

    Best book about lusitania.

    What Walter Lord did for Titanic now Larson does for Lusitania. Couldn't put it down and sad to finish it.
