3:10 Dead Wake

The sinking of the superliner, Lusitania in May 1915 is considered the "other Titanic" in the history of maritime tragedies. 

A German submarine fired a torpedo into the mighty ship off the coast of Ireland killing close to 1200 people and pushing an outraged United States closer to joining the First World War. 

Author Erik Larson tells the story of the sinking, and the cover up of the legendary disaster in his book, Dead Wake: The Last Crossing of the Lusitania.
