<p><b>1st May 1915: the luxury ocean liner <i>Lusitania</i> sailed out of New York, bound for Liverpool. </b></p><p><b>Her passengers were anxious. Germany had declared the seas around Britain to be a war zone and its submarines were bringing terror to the Atlantic.</b></p><p> But the <i>Lusitania</i>'s captain, William Thomas Turner, had faith in the gentlemanly terms of warfare that had, for a century, kept civilian ships safe from attack. </p><p>He also knew that his ship was the fastest then in service and could outrun any threat. Germany was, however, intent on changing the rules, and Walther Schwieger, the captain of <i>Unterseeboot-20</i>, was happy to oblige. For this would be the ill-fated <i>Lusitania</i>'s final crossing . . .</p>
