A personal account of the author's experience as a survivor of the sinking of the troopship Leopoldville by a German submarine on Christmas Eve, 1944. Emotional and personal to me since my own father was also a survivor of this disaster off the coast of France. The botched rescue attempt was predominantly secret for decades but resulted in the deaths of more than 700 American troops.
