Description

Spring 1915 is consumed with two traumatic events.

Canada endures a trial by fire at the Second Battle of Ypres. While the Canadians are ultimately successful – to the pride of their countrymen – the battle marks the first widespread use of chlorine gas. The gas moved across the ground like a yellow-green fog, damaged the mucus membranes and caused asphyxiation.

Meanwhile, Americans are rocked by the torpedoing of the Lusitania, an ocean liner that – like the Titanic – was thought to be unsinkable. The sinking cost the lives of nearly 1,200 people including women, children and babies, and split the United States into two camps – those who wanted war and those who still believed in neutrality.
