On Sept. 17, 1940, at a little after ten at night, a German submarine torpedoed the passenger liner S.S. City of Benares in the North Atlantic. There were 406 people on board, including 90 children headed for peaceful Canada, their parents having electedto send them away from Great Britain to escape the ravages of World War II. The Benares sank in half an hour, in a gale that sent several of her lifeboats pitching into the frigid sea, more than three hundred miles from the nearest rescue vessel. Not oneof the survivors had any reasonable hope of rescue. The initial 'miracle' involves one British destroyer's race to the scene; the second is the story of Lifeboat 12, missed by the destroyer, 46 people jammed for eight days in a craft built for 30. Based on first hand accounts from the child survivors and other passengers.--From publisher description.Based on eyewitness accounts, a chronicle of survival at sea describes the German submarine attack on the passenger liner S.S. City of Benares, a ship carrying ninety children from war-ravaged Britain to the safety of Canada.

From an acclaimed biographer, a riveting account of what happened to the survivors of the Titanic—to be published in the lead-up to the 100th anniversary of the ship’s sinking.April 14, 2012 will mark the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic. While much has been written about the great ship, her shocking demise, and those who perished, very little has been devoted to the hundreds of survivors. In Shadow of the Titanic, Andrew Wilson offers a moving look at how their lives were affected by living through this catastrophic event.For the first time ever, those who lived to tell the tale reveal how they coped in the aftermath. Using archival research and interviews with family members, Wilson offers a unique take on this fascinating story. He shows how some survivors used their experience to propel themselves on to fame and how others were wracked with guilt and refused to acknowledge they had been there. Some reputations were destroyed, and some survivors were so psychologically damaged that they took their own lives years later. From the famous survivors like Bruce Ismay and Madeline Astor—who became a bride, a widow, and a mother all within a year—to lesser known survivors Dorothy Gibson and the Navartil brothers—who were traveling under assumed names because they were being abducted by their father—Shadow of the Titanic offers a host of astonishing stories that add an important new dimension to our understanding of this legendary disaster.
