Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.

From award-winning author Deborah Heiligman comes Torpedoed, a true account of the attack and sinking of the passenger ship S City of Benares, which was evacuating children from England during WI.

Amid the constant rain of German bombs and the escalating violence of World War I, British parents by the thousands chose to send their children out of the country: the wealthy, independently; the poor, through a government relocation program called CORB. In September 1940, passenger liner S City of Benares set out in a convoy of nineteen ships sailing for Canada. On board were ninety CORB children, chaperones, and crew, along with paying passengers.

When the war ships escorting the Benares to safe waters peeled off and the way forward seemed certain, a German submarine attacked and torpedoed the Benares. What followed is an amazing example of all that people are capable of--the worst, and the best.
