We all know that the Lusitania was sunk by a German U boat with a great loss of life Larson shows how a book about such an event can be done in an entertaining and informative way Basically he looks at the event from a myriad of different viewpoints making each element interesting while not lingering so long on any one of them to lose that interest I couldn't put it down
