American Merchant Ships Sunk in WWII

Source - A Careless Word, A Needless Sinking by Captain Arthur R. Moore

This table takes a little time to upload but you will be pleased with the information provided about the Merchant Ships of World War II and is well worth the wait. While you are waiting why not a silent prayer for the heros who manned these ships, both Merchant Marine and Armed Guard. The war would never have been won without the valiant efforts of these men. The Merchant Marine who manned the engine rooms were the most often killed due to the explosions.
