Book Halifax Explosion                                                            

Two thousand people died in the catastrophic explosion that followed the collision of two ships in the harbour of Halifax, Nova Scotia, on the morning of December 6, 1917. It was the largest man-made blast prior to the 1945 development of the atomic bomb. How and why did the worst disaster in Canadian history happen? Veteran journalist-author Ken Cuthbertson, the author of The Halifax Explosion: Canada's Worst Disaster, recounts the unforgettable true story of a disaster that never should have happened, and he reveals some little-known Kingston connections to the terrible events of that day.
