Blizzard of Glass: The Halifax Explosion of 1917 [Kindle Edition]
Blizzard of Glass: The Halifax Explosion of 1917
[Kindle Edition]
Age Level: 10 – 14 | Grade Level: 5 – 9
On December 6, 1917, two ships collided in Halifax Harbour. One ship was loaded top to bottom with munitions and one held relief supplies, both intended for war-torn Europe. The resulting blast flattened two towns, Halifax and Dartmouth, and killed nearly 2,000 people. As if that wasn’t devastating enough, a blizzard hit the next day, dumping more than a foot of snow on the area and paralyzing much-needed relief efforts. Fascinating, edge-of-your-seat storytelling based on original source material conveys this harrowing account of tragedy and recovery.
