Dead Wake Zusammenfassung

Dead Wake: The Last Crossing of the Lusitania Erik Larson

On 1st May 1915, the luxury ocean liner Lusitania sailed out of New York, bound for Liverpool. Her passengers were anxious. Germany had declared the seas around Britain to be a war zone and its submarines were bringing terror to the Atlantic. But the Lusitania's captain, William Thomas Turner, had faith in the gentlemanly terms of warfare that had, for a century, kept civilian ships safe from attack. He also knew that his ship was the fastest then in service and could outrun any threat. Germany was, however, intent on changing the rules, and Walther Schwieger, the captain of Unterseeboot-20, was happy to oblige. For this would be the ill-fated Lusitania's final crossing . . .

Dead Wake Bewertungen

"Gripping, superbly well-researched...he ratchets up the tension as the doomed ship speeds towards the inevitable. Though you know it's going to happen, you keep praying that it won't, right up until the moment when the torpedo strikes. You feel this way because Larson makes you care...Thanks to Larson's vivid narrative, you are there with those passengers in the thick of it. It may have happened 100 years ago, but this masterpiece made it feel like yesterday." -- James Delingpole * MAIL ON SUNDAY *
"A fascinating, well-researched read." * Kate Atkinson *
"With practised skill Larson confronts the emotional pathos of wartime tragedy." -- Iain Finlayson * THE TIMES *
"Vivid...Larson tells his story well." -- Andrew Holgate * SUNDAY TIMES *
"Larson's irresistibly pacey narrative moves between the various scenes of action, conjuring them up in vivid detail...the sources are remarkable...[his] detailed conversational endnotes are an added bonus." -- Lucy Moore * LITERARY REVIEW *
