A novel about the sinking of the Cunard passenger liner "Lustitania" in 1915. Like the "unsinkable Titanic" before her, she was supposedly virtually unsinkable until the seventh of May 1915 when she was hit with a German torpedo and went down in the Irish Sea, with the loss of life of 1200 of a complement of 1900 people on board. In this novel the author goes behind the scenes, to the captain of the Lustitania and of the captain of the U-boat who fired the torpedo, politics of the time, of the raging War taking place and of the German policy called "Schrecklizhkeit" (frightfullness] by which they hoped to demoralise their enemies.
