The Lusitania by Colin Simpson( Book )

56 editions published between 1972 and 2014 in 7 languages and held by 2,642 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On May 7, 1915, the German U-boat 20 torpedoed and sank the "unarmed" passenger liner Lusitania off the coast of Ireland, killing some 1200 men, women, and children--many of them Americans. The world raged at the barbarity of the Kaiser and the German people, and the act did much to precipitate the later entrance of the United States into World War I. This book claims that the Lusitania was unstable, improperly designed, badly staffed, and loaded with munitions for the Allies--and that the British Admiralty, with high American complicity, to an extent created the situation in which the ship could be sunk
The secret lives of Lawrence of Arabia by Phillip Knightley( Book )

22 editions published between 1969 and 1971 in English and held by 948 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Thomas Edward Lawrence, CB, DSO (16 August 1888[5]? 19 May 1935), known professionally as T.E. Lawrence, was a British Army officer renowned especially for his liaison role during the Sinai and Palestine Campaign and the Arab Revolt against Ottoman Turkish rule of 1916?18. The breadth and variety of his activities and associations, and his ability to describe them vividly in writing, earned him international fame as Lawrence of Arabia, a title which was used for the 1962 film based on his World War I activities."--Wikipedia
