Grade Level:
Why did Germany torpedo the Lusitania, a civilian vessel? And why did such an enormous ship sink so fast? Now, take a high-tech plunge beneath the Irish Channel and relive one of the century's most mysterious maritime tragedies: The date is May 7, 1915, just nine months into World War I. A German U-boat torpedoes the Lusitania - one of the largest and fastest luxury liners in the world. Of the 1,959 people aboard, including millionaire Alfred Vanderbilt, nearly two-thirds will die. Many are trapped inside as the great ship sinks in just eighteen minutes. Survivors recount the mysterious, massive second blast following the torpedo hit. Was the Lusitania carrying a secret cargo of high explosives from the neutral United States for Britain? Some think so, but explorer and scientist Dr. Robert Ballard, discoverer of RMS Titanic and the German battleship Bismarck, has doubts. Join the great undersea detective on a classic National Geographic adventure as he probes the sunken liner in a two-person mini-sub for clues that could rewrite history.
