SINKING OF THE LIBERTY: SS JOHN A. JOHNSON

For several, several years I've researched and published on my web site about sinkings of Merchant shipping during the WW II  era.....included in this "grouping" of Merchant vessels were "Liberty Ships"...and really they were "Merchant Freighters"...only thing different they were more or less owned by the government...and managed by private companies.

Yes war ...is war..ships are sunk...seamen get killed....but most generally I've read many a report where the ship was torpedoed...the men abandon ship....and pretty much once in the life boats...the enemy offer food, and a direction to go to reach the nearest land.

But I have a history that just turns the tables on what was generally the norm on the sinking of a ship....  And actually there was no reason for this type of action....if you'd care to give this a read...it will simply blow your mind....how can people be so cruel


Hope you find it ....interesting.
