The German government actually posted ads in American newspapers warning the American people of the deception of the Lusitainia. W. Churchill's famous for setting-up the Lusitania by calling off Juno its British escort ship as the Lusitania closed-in on British waters. Escort ships were the norm and the Juno was already assigned to protect the Lusitania. The Lusitania was transporting civilian passengers decking on the upper-floor unknowingly above war supplies and cruising through an active war zone.
