Summary
When two ships collided in Halifax Harbour, on December 6, 1917, one of them was full of munitions for World War I. The ensuing explosion, aftershocks, and tsunami wreaked unbelievable devastation. It was the largest explosion in the world until the atomic bomb was detonated in World War II in 1945.
