The lusitania was a British passenger ship. It was sunk by a German U-boat. A U-boat is a submarine or an Unterseeboot. Unterseeboot means under sea boat. This happened in May in 1915. About 1,100 people died. 128 of thoes were Americans. When passengers boarded the boat they were warned about possible U-boat attacks. The ship was carrying war materials such as bombs and ammunition so the extra weight made it sink faster. It took about 15 min for the Lusitania to sink. From then on passenger ships were not allowed to carry war materials.
In late 1915 there was a ship called the Sussex. It was a French neutral ship that was damaged by a German U-boat. A U-boat is a submarine or an Unterseeboot. Unterseeboot means under sea boat.
