The Town That Died

  Author:   Michael J Bird    
  Publisher:  Nimbus Publishing

The Town That Died is a moving and detailed account of the greatest human-made explosion before Hiroshima, the terrible disaster known as the Halifax Explosion. It is the first documentary account, told from the personal experiences of survivors, to accurately chronicle the tragic events that led to the ill-fated collision between the Imo and the munitions-laden Mont Blanc in the harbour narrows and the dreadful consequences. Michael J. Bird’s passion for truth, supported by his engaging literary style, makes The Town That Died a classic in the annals of human courage and suffering.
