Helen Davis Featured Book: Dead Wake

Dead WakeErik Larson’s Dead Wake tells the story of the sinking of the Lusitania.  This was one factor that precipitated America’s entry into WWI.  I believe this author writes a nonfiction book in the same way that people think about an event.  We want to know what led to the conflict, why it happened and what are the tools that the adversaries used.  This book isn’t only about the sinking, but informs the reader about ocean crossings, early submarines, and British naval spying.
