Erik Larson talked about his book, Dead Wake: The Last Crossing of the Lusitania, about the state of world politics surrounding the 1915 sinking of the Lusitania. He spoke about the departure and eventual sinking of the ship, focusing on the personal stories of those involved, including the captains of the Lusitania and the German U-Boat, Woodrow Wilson, Winston Churchill, and a number of the passengers on board.
