    1. This a vivid description of the collision of two ships in Halifax harbor in 1917. Story listed as the greatest man-made explosion before Hiroshima. The book gives detailed description of the events leading up to the explosion and personal descriptions of the events following as they worked to help the thousands injured and all the dead. It is not a read for the faint at heart. The book ends with a full description of the commission looking for why it happened and who was at fault. Interesting to [...]

    2. The story of the greatest man made explosion before Hiroshima, occurring in Halifax harbour Dec 6,1917 during WWI.

    3. This book is an account of the Halifx explosion in December 1917 when a ship loaded with WW1 explosives collided with another ship in the Halifax harbour. The resulting explosion decimated the city and killed thousands.

I gave up on it about 1/3 of the way through.
