Seeking the roots of society's fascination and obsession with horror, Poole lands on World War I. The unimaginable carnage and obliteration of life wrought by that war, according to Poole, impacted artists in their creation of horror novels and films, and, more dangerously, infected cultures, breeding Nazism, totalitarianism, and fascism. ~ Reviewed by Mike Hare

The cross-currents of one of history's deadliest and momentous maritime acts come achingly to life in Larson's account. From the cramped German U-boat to a lovelorn Woodrow Wilson, from British intelligence to the Lusitania's captain, and, hauntingly, from scores of passengers, the gripping story steams toward its tragic end. ~ Reviewed by Mike Hare

America's deliberate entry into World War I, fueled by patriotism, jingoism, militarism, and pivoted by Germany's indiscriminate submarine warfare, is thoroughly chronicled by Wagner. The Great War's end result: America's emergence as a great world power, remains the foundation of international relations a century later. ~ Reviewed by Mike Hare

The torpedoing of the Lusitania was considered an act of unparalleled barbarism in 1915, but whispers that the great liner was deliberately left vulnerable in dangerous waters have never completely abated. This is a thorough examination of a disaster that claimed 1,200 lives and an intelligent evaluation of the questions that surrounded it. ~ Reviewed by Alden Graves

A fatal day in May

On May 1,1915, the Lusitania, one of the world’s finest and fastest ocean liners, pulled away from Pier 54 in New York and headed out into the Atlantic with 1,959 people on board. The ship’s destination was Liverpool, but it only made it as far as the southern tip of Ireland, where the Lucy, as she was affectionately known, crossed paths with a German submarine. Her destruction was merciless and quickly over, accomplished with one torpedo that was immediately followed by a massive internal explosion. She disappeared beneath the chilly waters of the Irish Sea in only 18 minutes, leaving hundreds of men, women, and children adrift in the ocean, hoping against hope that help would come in time.
