The tragic sinking of the ocean liner Lusitania on May the 15th 1915 made history because of the terrible loss of life and the way it changed the course of World War I.

To commemorate 109 years from her sinking we are honored to share with you a talk with our friend naval architect Dr. Stephen Payne, the man that created the ocean liner Queen Mary 2, that speaks from his home near Southampton, UK. He shares with us his knowledge on the events and we review the causes and consequences.

This is part 2 of the ongoing series of talks on the history of ocean liners. Feel free to watch our talk on the RMS Titanic, which is already online. We are currently preparing further episodes on the greatest passenger ships of all times, that will not necessarily have to do with such tragic events.
