In Allied Secret, Carlton Jackson recounts the single greatest loss of American lives at sea during World War II: the sinking of the British troopship HMT Rohna on November 26, 1943, by a German guided bomb. Over one thousand American soldiers died in the disaster, which was kept secret for security reasons during the war and then largely forgotten. In this book, Jackson brings the tragedy to light. In a preface to this edition, he notes that a Rohna association was formed after his book first appeared, and tells of the numerous letters he has received from survivors, victims' families, and others who knew little about the event until Allied Secret was published.
