On December 6, 1917, two ships collided in Halifax Harbour. One ship was loaded top to bottom with munitions and one held medical supplies, both intended for wartorn Europe. The resulting blast flattened two towns, Halifax and Dartmouth, and killed nearly 2,000 people. As if that wasn't devastating enough, a blizzard hit the next day, dumping more than a foot of snow on the area and paralyzing much-needed relief efforts.  Fascinating, edge-of-your-seat storytelling based on original source material conveys this harrowing account of tragedy and recovery.
