Based on the recollection of survivors, rescuers and witnesses, newspaper report and original research, this account of a harring time in Scottish history pays tribute to the brave residents of the island of Islay. From the sinking of the troopship Tuscania, the first major loss of US troops in the war, to the tragic sinking of the armed merchant cruiser the Otranto this shows the bravery of the islanders who pulled med from the sea, cared for the injured and buried the dead.
