Summary
  • An account of the Great Halifax explosion of 1917 when the freighter Mont-Blanc, carrying six million pounds of explosives, detonated, sending a shockwave that leveled the surrounding city
  • While much has been written about the December 1917 explosion, there is still more to the story, including the investigation of the key figures involved, the histories of the ships that collided, and the confluence of circumstances that brought these two vessels together to touch off one of the most tragic man-made disasters of the twentieth century. December 6, 2017, marks the centennial of the great Halifax explosion. This book tells the gripping, haunting tale of survival, incredible courage and, ultimately, the triumph of the human spirit
