3.0 out of 5 stars The Halifax Explosion in 1917 is not well known. Neither is the Silverton Explosion in East London. Take a look !, 7 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Halifax Explosion and the Royal Canadian Navy: Inquiry and Intrigue (Studies in Canadian Military History) (Paperback)
I was in Halifax, Nova Scotia (Canada) in 1995. I knew that the Titanic dead where delivered here but I knew nothing of the munition ship collision and explosoin in the harbour 1917 that devastated the town of Halifax.

The results of the enquiry and following report was a bit ambiguous as to blame. But the British empire was at war and the Canadian navy was still developing.

Still, a good introduction to this tragic event. Remember, our women, children and other family memebrws who weren't at the front in WWI were still fighting.

Anyone interested in the social history of the first world war should include this in their enquiries - as well as the Silvertown munitions wors explosion in East London.
