This short is quite good. Read a great book on the Lusitania recently called "DEAD WAKE: The Last Crossing of the Lusitania" by Erik Larson. A very sobering book that leaves a lot of unanswered questions about British political and Admiralty "intentions" and "culpability" in the disaster. In other words, Britain was ready to do about anything to possibly get the U.S. involved in the war. British documents are still closed and unavailable on the sinking and political ramifications and why there was not more British naval protection for the ship..
The pre-War U.S. position has always fascinated me and yet, I have not read much about it. Occasionally, I will see a program on cable but that's about it. I did read Douglas Brinkley's WHEELS for the WORLD - this touched lightly on Ford's (the man) pre-War position. One of a handful of books I read straight through. A good read.
