A story of disaster and bravery you've probably never heard of

The gripping story of the Port Chicago disaster off the coast of California in 1944. It's an amazing story of how a brave group of 50 Navy sailors refused to go back to work amidst grossly unsafe working conditions, and the consequences they faced for these brave actions. A really suspenseful and important read. I highly recommend for tweens, teens and adults who are fans of narrative non-fiction.
