FIRE AT SEA The Story of the Morro Castle

Gallagher (Thomas)

On the night of September 5, 1934, the liner 'Morro Castle' burst into flames off the New Jersey coast. Spreading with incredible speed, fire engulfed the whole superstructure. Within an hour, hundreds of passengers and crew were either dead or floundering helplessly in the water. The official death toll reached 134. Was the fire accidental, or deliberately planned by a lunatic on board? Was the fire connected with the mysterious death, a few hours earlier, of the 'Morro Castle's' normally robust captain? For years afterwards controversy raged and the mysteries remained. Now this penetrating book offers a sensational solution. A true horror story combined with the elements of an engrossing whodunit. Also features Chief Radio Operator George W. Rogers, Lt. Vincent Doyle, William and Edith Hummel. Illus. + Passenger List and Crew List.
