Nearly 1,150 American soldiers were killed on November 26, 1943 when a German guided bomb struck the British troopship "Rohna" in the Mediterranean. The disaster was kept secret for security purposes and even after the war, little information about it was released. In this volume, Jackson (history, Western Kentucky U.) provides a detailed account of the incident, the rescue effort, and the survivors' recovery. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
