Good condition, 1948 Bantam Paperback. Front and back cover have some creases. Actual pages and spine are very good.

Six survived to tell what happened.

At 8:15 a.m. on a sultry August day, the hum of machinery rose from a big, sprawling industrial town. Suddenly, the great city lay shattered -- obliterated by the worst single man-made disaster in the history of the world.

Yet, these six people -- a file clerk, a widowed seamstress, a physician, a Methodist minister, a young surgeon, a Catholic priest -- survived!

What actually happened to them? How did they escape? What did they see and hear... and feel?
