The munitions vessel drifted into the North End and exploded, killing more than sixteen hundred people instantly, wounding more than nine thousand others, and damaging or destroying approximately twelve thousand buildings. The complete devastation covered an area of 325 acres, and hardly a window in the city was left intact. This book, the most comprehensive ever written on the explosion, details the terrific devastation, the aftermath and the restoration.

It encompasses dozens of previously unpublished stories, photographs, and documents, along with some thought-provoking coverage of the inquiry into the disaster. A best selling book from its first printing in 1989, this new updated edition includes a comprehensive index, and is sure to be a must-have for readers.
