Nor was i. Iv spent the last few days going over countless books and survivor testimony and photos of the wreck to get the full understanding. Il make a dedicated post about the timeline and angles ect to hear peoples input to make it as accurate as i can. I can name about 9 people off hand of saying she reached about a 45 degree angle and "pausing" for about 30 seconds. Considering that the first 100 feet or so of the bottom bow is just missing and he back is broken this leads me to believe that she hit bottom going at a good speed destroying the lower forward hull and (much like if Titanic hit the berg head on) kept going until the keel broke its back. You can see it good here.To be honest, I’m not too familiar with the actual sinking of the Lusitania, as I haven’t read through testimony like I have with a Titanic, but based on the fact that she hit the bottom, had a starboard list, and survivors saw the propellers, I’d say it’s fairly accurate.
