  • 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.
