Ships burning, exploding

Residents along the coasts saw and heard the explosions from their homes. Death came instantly when ammunition ships were hit.

Submarines lurked along our coasts and mined our harbors. Ships were at the battlefront the moment they left the dock.

1 in 8 mariners lost their ships due to torpedoes, mines, bombers, kamikazes, or uncharted waters.
