Riassunto: 2015 marks the centennial anniversary of one of the worst maritime disasters in the history of the great trans-Atlantic liners: the sinking of the RMS Lusitania. This volume helps to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the disaster by telling the complete story of the life and loss of the Lusitania.

Today, the Lusitania is mostly remembered for her tragic sinking, the political repercussions of the disaster, and on numerous conspiracies which have sprung up around her. While it is important to remember her tragic loss and the people whose lives were forever changed by that event, it is also important to remember the history of the great liner in context.

Prior to May 7, 1915, the Lusitania was already a legend: not for tragedy, but instead for success. Having entered service in September 1907, for seven and a half years, she crossed the North Atlantic with punctuality and dependability. She fast became the ship of choice for many of the transatlantic travellers. Since her sinking, however, the story of her wondrous career and technological marvels have largely been neglected. Instead, the focus has shifted to her political importance, and on numerous conspiracy theories about her last voyage and sinking.

This special centennial edition of Lusitania: An Illustrated Biography discusses the entire story of the liner. There have been numerous updates, expansions and corrections to the 2010 text; new photographic and illustrative material has been added, many of them in large format to help bring her back to life for readers. Artist Stuart Williamson has generously added some of his pieces to the color section to help supplement the fine work of Tom Lear, which was produced specifically for the 2010 edition. In short, everything that was so highly regarded about the previous edition has been retained, while the improvements and additions bring the book to new heights.

It is hoped that this new volume will be a fitting tribute to all of those who sailed aboard, died on, and who were ever touched by the legendary Lusitania. This special edition is not to be missed, and belongs on the shelves of anyone who loves the history of the great Atlantic liners.

From the Author: With the upcoming centennial of the Lusitania disaster, I knew that it was time to prepare my book for re-release. The important thing to me was to prevent it from just being a 'repackaged' book with a 'centennial' label slapped across its face. The book was the book, and the basic text needed to remain the same; however, how could it be improved or expanded? What new photographic or illustrative material could be brought in? Where could low-quality images from the first edition be reduced in size, and better or rarer images displayed in large format?

All of these questions led to a thorough revamp of the entire book. The layout has been completely redone. The blueprints which I personally drew for the 2010 edition have been given a larger print size. The photo and illustration count is up. Whether you enjoyed the 2010 edition, or did not have the opportunity to acquire that volume, make sure to get your copy of this splendid centennial edition release. I hope very much that it will be a fitting tribute to those whose lives were touched by the Lusitania, both in life and in death.--J. Kent Layton, February 2015.

Kent Layton, Tom Lear, Mike Poirier, Jim Kalafus, It is now a century since the Lusitania sank. For seven and a half years after her maiden voyage, she crossed the rugged North Atlantic with punctuality and dependability. She had fast become a living legend, the ship of choice for many of the transatlantic travelers. Since her sinking on May 7, 1915, however, her wondrous career and technological marvels have largely been neglected. Instead, the focus has shifted to her political importance, and on numerous conspiracy theories about her last voyage and sinking. This illustrated biography of the Lusitania discusses her entire story, from her conception and birth on the Clyde to her career and, finally, her tragic demise off the coast of Ireland; it reveals her as she has never been seen before. Prepare to take a journey back in time.step aboard the decks of one of the world's largest, finest, fastest and most beloved ocean liners, and relive her history in all its splendor. Today the Lusitania is remembered mostly for her tragic sinking on May 7, 1915, and the political ramifications of that disaster. That sinking, however, was merely the startling and grim finale to an incredibly eventful life, the death of one legend and the beginning of another. This book relives the entire life of the Lusitania, from her beginnings to her demise; it is an unprecedented biography of the great ship and the people who sailed on her. From the ship's technical design features to the greatest events in her career, her story is told in both words and pictures. Hundreds of photographs and illustrations, breathtaking new artwork, and all-new plans of the ship reveal the liner as never before. Codice libro della libreria B9781445642628
