Sinking Of Lusitania Analysis

Satisfactory Essays
I believe The Sinking of Lusitania 1918 Animation video suggest that the Germans are really really bad guys. They killed 200 American passengers. The video shows people carrying on with their peaceful life’s on the ship all before they were fired by a German submarine. Without a warning they were attacked killing 114 Americans, many who were important. To see such tragic leaves a vengeful feeling. In the video there is a quote that says “No warning was given - no mercy was shown” making the Germans seem really inhumane. I feel like this video is pro-war. I do believe the video attempts to cautions Americans with respect to getting involve in this affair by emphasizing on the Americans that were on the ship.
