In remembrance of the 100th Anniversary of the torpedoing and sinking of the Lusitania and America’s military involvement in the Great War two highly anticipated books have been released detailing the events leading up that fateful date of May 7, 1915.

Both books are rich in history showcasing many memorable names from the era based on recovered diaries and first-hand accounts. Not overlooked is the blame surrounding the disappearance of critical information at the time of the sinking. Conspiracy theorists may find a bit more to whet their appetites in King’s and Wilson’s Lusitania, but Larson’s Dead Wake, proves a more historically significant read, no surprise there for his legions of fans.
