4:07 The War That Changed The World – USA: Isolationism
Jonathan Dimbleby presents a public debate from the US Library of Congress in Washington, to discuss the relevance and legacy of World War One for the United States.
On 1 May 1915, one century ago, the British ocean liner Lusitania set sail from New York to Liverpool. She never arrived. In an event which was to have massive consequences, a German U-boat torpedoed the Lusitania on 7 May off the southern coast of Ireland. She sank in less than 20 minutes, with the loss of 1198 lives. The death toll was 128 Americans, and their deaths caused a storm of protest which was a crucial turning point in American public and political opinion about World War One. This event scorched itself on the American consciousness and was constantly reiterated by those, like Teddy Roosevelt, who were determined that America would enter the war against Germany. (BBCWS)
