SINKING OF THE LUSITANIA: On the 7th of May 1915, 1,198 people were killed on board the British steamship RMS Lusitania when it was torpedoed and sunk by a German u-boat in the waters off the British Isles. The incident is often viewed as a catalyst for the United States declaring war on the German Empire and entering the first World War. Of the 2,000 passengers aboard that day, many were well-to-do Americans, which continues to fuel the controversy that surrounded the incident. Could the British have placed the ship in danger deliberately to incite the wrath of the United States against Germany? Dr. Robert Ballard, a famed marine explorer best known for his discovery of the remains of the RMS Titanic and the German battleship Bismarck, leads a quest to find the facts behind the Lusitania disaster.
