Episode Summary

The Strange Ordeal of the Normandier
The Normandier was a tramp steamer which was struck by disaster in mid-Atlantic in 1918. Blackwater fever swept the ship, killing its officers and crew or rendering them helpless. One of the survivors, wireless operator H.L. Treree, has written a book about the ill-fated voyage. The program is based on the recently-published book by an Englishman, H. L. Tredree, one of two living survivors of a sea tragedy in World War I involving the S.S. Normandier. Her crew stricken with blackwatcr fever on the way from West Africa to a Canadian port, and her engines dead in a raging gale, the ship became the scene of despair, madness and heroism before American warships came to her aid.moreless
