The Halifax explosion was unprecedented in its devastation with regards to casualties, force and radius of the blast, and its widespread damage to property.

On the morning of December 6, 1917, a munitions vessel loaded with explosives collided with a cargo ship in Halifax harbour triggering the worst man-made explosion prior to Hiroshima. At about 9:06 A.M., 3121 tons of steel exploded into fragments, houses collapsed, factories toppled and churches crumbled. The apocalyptic blast ravaged Halifax and Dartmouth, killing at least 1900 people and injuring thousands more. This gripping account describes the events of that fateful day in vivid detail, following the heroes and survivors of the Halifax Explosion as they struggle to cope with the devastation.
