HUGE SHIP ROLLED OVER AT DOCK

Submitted by Kelly

Anyone know what ship this is and any details?

Rec'd form Robert Cook - 2-24-05:

WWII, February of 1942.

French Liner Normandie, burning and sinking at the Manhatten docks.

When France surrendered, the US "kept" this very new, very fast liner because they were one of the only means of shipping troops overseas, and the US/Britain didn't want the ship lost to Germany's war machine. (Legally, it became German property.)

But during refit and conversion, a fire of "very suspicious origin," (sabotague almost certainly!), started in a pile of rags, and the whole ship burned. Fighting the fires (the wrong way!) flooded the ship on one side, and it rolled over at the dock -

These events lost the ship, the docks, the warehouses next to the dock, and the cranes and port facilities... Plus, the ship had to be re-floated, towed and salvaged: All a tremendous waste of time and effort. - Equal to a successful bombing raid on NY City by Germany.
