In September 1940, 90 lucky English children were placed aboard the S. S. City of Benares by their parents, bound from Liverpool to Canada. They were pioneers in a program designed to spirit British children from their war-ravaged homes to safer shores. But in the darkness of September 17th, a German U-boat sunk their ship, tossing them and the other 316 people on board into a rough, gale-driven sea. How any of them survived is a miracle. Journalist Tom Nagorski's stirring account, based on interviews with survivors, reveals the saga for the first time.
