President Woodrow Wilson continues a series of speeches calling on the US “not to prepare for war or for anything smacking of aggression, but for adequate national defence”. (IT)

Germany’s failure to apologise for the sinking of the Lusitania off Kinsale last May, or to compensate families of the 129 US victims (1,191 died in the sinking) continues to cause tensions between the US and Germans and inflame public opinion. Germany insists the sinking was a legitimate act of war as the ship, it alleges, contained explosives and armaments – Britain, which denies the claims, uses the issue to push the US towards entry in war. (In 2014 a release of official papers revealed that in 1982, the British government warned divers of the presence of explosives on board).
