Wilful Murder The sinking of the LUSITANIA by Diana Preston is another gripping true story written by this wonderful writer of history The LUSITANIA was torpedoed on 751915 just after 2pm off the Southern coast of Ireland It took just 18 mins for the boat to sink About 23rds of crew and passengers 1200 perished The Ship was on a return leg from New York The LUSITANIA with Captain William Turner in charge was controversially sunk by German submarine U20under the leadership of Captain Walter Schwieger who reported to Cmdr Herman Bauer and German Navy boss Admiral Von TirpitzThere were many twists and turns in this graphic account of what was judged to be wiful Murder and my only cricism of the book was how the story went back and forth across many story offshoots all relevant but which I think interuppted the flow of the story somewhat But this is a minor issue subjective at best and therefore not likely to concern a lot of readersAs you can see the story is straight forward But was it Conspiracy theories abound and wonderful snippets of information such as the German Kaiser at the time was in fact ueen Victoria s favourite grandson Fritz who used to to be fussed over by the ueen when he was a young boy And the heroic and sefless actions of one of America s richest men Alfred Vanderbilt who gave his own life in order to rescue women and children The author takes us from dark dockside meetings to meetings at the Whitehouse A superb and engrossing read that will make you feel like you are back in the late 19th and early 20th centuries watching history unfold
