Hopefully we will defeat the Central Powers
These weapons will help our allies in Europe
We have orders to fire at any ships around Britain.
Sinking of Lusitania The Lusitania was a British ocean liner that was sunken by German U-Boats during WWI.
British ship ahead!
The Lusitania was secretly transporting weapons and munitions across the Atlantic during the war. This was used as justification by Germany for sinking the ship
Germany declared unrestricted submarine warfare in early 1915 around the British Isles. Germany would shoot at any ship even if they were from neutral countries.
I can't believe Germany sank the Lusitania and killed Americans.
Yeah, I believe we should declare war on Germany.
Germany u-boats fired at the Lusitania on May 7, 1915. The ship was 11 miles off the coast of southern Ireland.
The Lusitania sank within 20 minutes. Around 1,200 people were killed including 128 American citizens.
This event changed the public opinion in America about the war. Almost 2 years later the United States had entered WWI. Usmaan Sahibzada
