The Story Of A Transport
(USS Wakefield) DVD
The wartime career of the USS Wakefield was spent transporting tens of thousands of American soldiers to the battlefronts of the World. Built as an ocean liner (the Manhattan), she was a ship with a history of accidents: a grounding, a bomb hit in Singapore, and a disastrous fire at sea. After being rebuilt, she soldiered on with the humble job of housing her passengers with six-tier bunks, saltwater showers, and seasick soldiers.
