Description: 

Two months after Pearl Harbor and the US entry into World War II, a pair of destroyers escorted a supply ship through the treacherous North Atlantic to a base in Newfoundland. A nasty storm, combined with an officer’s reluctance to trust his experienced navigator and new radar system, ran ships aground on the rocks of adjacent coves. More than 200 American sailors lost their lives, but nearly as many were rescued by local miners and townspeople. This is a story of sacrifice, endurance, and heroism.

Running time: 85 minutes
Original release: October 6, 2018

This event is presented in partnership with the Consulate General of Canada in Detroit.
