Overview
From master storyteller John U. Bacon comes a riveting and heart-pounding account of history’s largest man-made explosion before the atomic bomb and its world-changing aftermath. This deeply researched narrative of the astonishing true events of December 1, 1917 brings to life the tragedy and bravery that transformed relations between the United States and Canada. On a cold winter morning in the Canadian port city of Halifax, the munitions ship Mont-Blanc erupted with 2.9 kilotons of TNT — an unprecedented explosion one-fifth the size of the atomic bomb. In less than one second, the Mont-Blanc was vaporized, most of the city was leveled, and a 35 foot tsunami erupted. Amidst the 11,000 casualties, incredible tales of survival and heroism arose. Most notably was the Boston-sent train filled with doctors, medicine, and money. In The Great Halifax Explosion, Bacon deftly details the moving stories of those who lived and selflessly threw themselves into rescue work that saved thousands. The mesmerizing stories are sure to entertain and educate readers of all ages.
