The HMT Rohna Attack
It’s time to tell the truth
WWII - Hitler’s secret weapon attack resulted in the greatest loss of life at sea by enemy action in the history of US war. The War Department classified the HMT Rohna attack that killed 1,015 US soldiers. Survivors were ordered to remain silent in a scandal that left a thousand soldiers at the bottom of the sea while their Gold Star families searched for answers. Fifty years later, one survivor decided it was time to tell the truth.
41 families of the Rohna casualties have been located.
