|Summary, etc.:|| From the acclaimed New York Times bestselling author, a gripping narrative-nonfiction account of the world's largest manmade explosion before the atomic bomb. In December 1917, a freighter carrying 3,000 tons of explosives sailed from Brooklyn bound for the trenches of WWI - en route, a cataclysmic disaster awaited. Bacon recreates the recklessness that caused the tragedy, the selfless rescue efforts that saved thousands, and the inspiring resilience that rebuilt the town.
