Lusitania was the pride of Cunard’s fleet in the early 1900’s. She was fast, luxurious and reliable. She charmed everyone who boarded her and was the largest ship ever built when she was launched in 1906. On May 7th, 1915 a German U-boat sank RMS Lusitania off the coast of Ireland; 1,195 people perished.
I am pleased to finally bring you the story of this magnificent vessel. Read and remember Lucy’s story. Her loss and the loss of 1,195 lives was as senseless a tragedy as there has ever been. Learn about the controversy surrounding her cargo and decide for yourself what is heavily debated; was Lusitania simply a victim of war or was she being used to ship more than just munitions, sailing under the guise of a commercial liner?
Lusitania’s story is much too informative to present to you on just one page. Lusitania has her own dedicated site at LostLiners.
