The HMT Rohna attack - a feature documentary
The greatest loss of life at sea by enemy action in the history of US war was covered up when Hitler’s secret weapon killed over 1,000 US soldiers. It was the first radio-guided missile attack ever launched against the US, but it was erased from history along with the men who died when the burning ship sank to the bottom of the sea. The US War Department declared the HMT Rohna attack “Classified” indefinitely ordering all survivors to remain silent in a cover-up scandal that left over a thousand Gold Star families in the dark.
62 families of the Rohna casualties have been located.
If you are the next-of-kin of a Rohna casualty or survivor, please help us locate the families of all the Rohna heroes.
