520    On May 1, 1915, a luxury ocean liner as richly appointed 
       as an English country house sailed out of New York, bound 
       for Liverpool, carrying a record number of children and 
       infants. The passengers were anxious. Germany had declared
       the seas around Britain to be a war zone, and for months, 
       its U-boats had brought terror to the North Atlantic. But 
       the Lusitania was one of the era's great transatlantic 
       "Greyhounds" and her captain, William Thomas Turner, 
       placed tremendous faith in the gentlemanly strictures of 
       warfare that for a century had kept civilian ships safe 
       from attack. He knew, moreover, that his ship -- the 
       fastest then in service -- could outrun any threat. 
       Germany, however, was determined to change the rules of 
       the game, and Walther Schwieger, the captain of 
       Unterseeboot-20, was happy to oblige. Meanwhile, an ultra-
       secret British intelligence unit tracked Schwieger's U-
       boat, but told no one. As U-20 and the Lusitania made 
       their way toward Liverpool, an array of forces both grand 
       and achingly small -- hubris, a chance fog, a closely 
       guarded secret, and more -- all converged to produce one 
       of the great disasters of history.
