Release date:2nd February 2015
Published by:The History Press
ISBN No: 978 0752497051


Lost to a German torpedo on 7 May 1915, Cunard’s RMS Lusitania captured the world’s imagination when she entered service in 1907. Not only was she was the largest, fastest ship in the world, she was revolutionary in design. Also a record breaker, Lusitania is now sadly remembered for her tragic loss, when she was hit by a U-boat torpedo on 7 May 1915, sinking in eighteen minutes with the loss of 1,198 souls. Through never-before-seen photographs and illustrations, expert Eric Sauder brings RMS Lusitania to life once again. With vivid, unseen photographs and postcards from his extensive private collection, this absorbing read will transport the reader back 100 years to a time when opulent Ships of State were the only way to cross the Atlantic.
