"It is about much more than just the sinking of the ship. It is an intriguing and authentic re-creationof the era and its prominent figures -- Woodrow Wilson, William Jennings B ryan, Winston Churchill and Kaiser Wilhelm -- as well as a revelation of the fascinating and complex events surrounding America's involvement in WorldWar I. It is a tragic tale of doomed passengers, their romances, their pas sions, their fears -- a grand tapestry of heroic survival and icy death. Itis the story of Captain Turner and the horrifying ordeal of losing his bel oved vessel. Above all, it is the compelling story of Kapitanleutnant Walther Schieger, the young commander of the German U-20, the troubled warrior who ultimately must obey his orders and sink the Lusitania." - from the dj.
