The Michelangelo Signorile Show on SiriusXM PROGRESS ch.127

This year marks the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Lusitania, one of Great Britain's greatest ocean liners, when it was torpedoed by a German submarine, killing 1,198 people.  That attack, along with several others in the Spring of 1915, are seen as not only the turning points in World War I, but in warfare altogether, which is the question at the heart of our guest new book, what constitutes a "just war"?  Historian Diana Preston wrote A Higher Form Of Killing: Six Weeks in World War I That Forever Changed the Nature of Warfare, and looks at incidents like the Lusitania and weighs the costs to the benefits of warfare and joins us today to discuss.
