The race to survive

On the morning of December 6, 1917, two ships collided in the Halifax harbour. Unfortunately for everyone nearby, one of the ships (the French freighter Mont-Blanc) happened to be carrying massive amounts of explosives on board. The delayed detonation that morning created the largest man-made explosion prior to the invention of the atomic bomb.
